I got same behavior (success in /var/tmp/ste/test; failure with "Lisp
nesting exceeds max-lisp-eval-depth" in the directory with long
pathname on two additional machines (with the same source tree).  One
with SuSE 8.2 as above (Dual Pentium III machine), the other with SuSE
7.2 (Pentium 4).

bootstrap also fails when in /var/tmp/ste/abcefghijk/test, but with a
different error location:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Wrote /var/tmp/ste/abcefghijk/test/lisp/eshell/esh-mode.elc
Compiling /var/tmp/ste/abcefghijk/test/lisp/./eshell/esh-module.el
Loading ange-ftp (source)...

In toplevel form:
eshell/esh-module.el:29:13:Error: Lisp nesting exceeds max-lisp-eval-depth
make[1]: *** [compile] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/ste/abcefghijk/test/lisp'
make: *** [bootstrap] Error 2
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Ah, this is the same failure as you described (in


  $ src/bootstrap-emacs -batch -f batch-byte-compile lisp/vc-arch.el

..., "make bootstrap" works (and the resulting src/emacs works).
Exactly as in your case with /usr/local/emacs/test.  I.e. the error
location seems to depend on the pathname of the build directory.  Odd.

Any ideas?

Bye, Reiner.
