It's a warning:

      dir_warning ("Error: charsets directory (%s) does not exist.\n\
Emacs will not function correctly without the character map files.\n\
Please check your installation!\n",
      /* TODO should this be a fatal error?  (Bug#909)  */

what actually stopped my build was an error about loading that JIS charset.
