The error suggests that an old version of generic is used (from before
define-generic-mode became a macro, one month ago).  Do you have
lisp/emacs-lisp/generic.el, revision 1.1?  Is your
lisp/emacs-lisp/generic.elc up to date?  Is an old lisp/generic.el{,c}
shadowing lisp/emacs-lisp/generic.el{,c}?
There was an old generic.elc that didn't get cleaned out by the bootstrap. This is probably the biggest problem caused by moving files around, CVS might delete the old .el file, but the .elc gets left behind.

Can you reproduce your problem when you (do a make bootstrap and)
start Emacs with "emacs -Q" and do (require 'generic-x) manually?
