During compilation of files.el, in a tree that was not yet installed, I
get the following message:

    Compiling /home/e/eliz/bzr/emacs/trunk/src/../lisp/files.el
    Warning: arch-independent data dir (/usr/local/share/emacs/23.1.91/etc/)
    does not exist.
    Error: charsets directory (/usr/local/share/emacs/23.1.91/etc/charsets)
    does not exist.
    Emacs will not function correctly without the character map files.
    Please check your installation!

I think this warning should be suppressed in an un-installed
Emacs.  At the very least, it should be a "Warning", not an "Error".
For best results, we should look at the charsets directory in the build
tree in this case.

It shows the correct value, in the build tree.

I cannot reproduce this anymore, anyway: compiling files.el no longer
produces these messages.

It could be that the problem happened because I renamed the parent
directory before building.  It's possible that the Emacs binary used
for compiling files.el did not yet pick up all of the new directory

I'm closing this bug.  If I ever see this again, I will reopen with
more details.
