If you started looking, I think you can stop.  It's a address@hidden
heisenbug.  If I add a single (message %s file) to
custom-make-dependencies, it displays ethio-util.el as the last file
name before the error.  But adding another message makes the problem
disappear, and the bootstrap runs flawlessly to completion.  Likewise,
running just "make custom-deps" with the emacs.exe built by the first
stage of the bootstrap doesn't produce any errors.

I will try a few more tricks; ideas for how to debug this, or where to
look, are welcome.

If you say that this started happening only lately, perhaps bisecting
might give some insights.

Thanks.
