What happens if you try this command on your system?  That is, if you

  ALTERNATE_EDITOR='' emacsclient -t -c

What I see on a typical GNU/Linux system is this:

  /home/e/eliz/emacs-current/lib-src/emacsclient: can't find socket; have you 
started the server?
  To start the server in Emacs, type "M-x server-start".

  Warning: due to a long standing Gtk+ bug
  Emacs might crash when run in daemon mode and the X11 connection is 
unexpectedly lost.
  Using an Emacs configured with --with-x-toolkit=lucid does not have this 
  Loading 00debian-vars...
  [More packages loading from the site-init file...]
  Starting Emacs daemon.
  Restarting server
  Emacs daemon should have started, trying to connect again

and then I see an Emacs frame (in text mode in this case, since -t was
used) open.  As you see, after warning me about no daemon running,
emacsclient starts a new daemon, then attempts to reconnect to it.

What happens if you try that?
