    ... or am I just being unlucky at the moment?

You are just being unlucky.  I updated CVS at 11:44 UTC this morning, 
2006 Feb 19, and built it with

     (progn (cd "/usr/local/src/emacs/") (compile "time make bootfast"))

It built fine.  I did use gcc 4.0.3 but not long ago, I used gcc 2.95.
I am also using GNU Make 3.81beta4, but I expect that make 3.79.1
would work.

(I presume that the slower

       (cd "/usr/local/src/emacs/")
        "./configure --with-type1 --with-x-toolkit=gtk \
         --prefix=/usr/local --with-sound=yes && \
         time make bootstrap && date"))

would also work, but I try to avoid `make bootstrap' whenever I can
because it is slow.  Every so often, I have to

     (progn (cd "/usr/local/src/emacs/") (compile "make maintainer-clean"))

before running `make bootstrap'.)

Occasionally, I cannot built successfully, but truthfully, that is
fairly rare.  Generally, I build once a day, start an instance of it
with `emacs/src/emacs -Q -D', and run a brief test.  Once in a while,
I remember to launch a new instance that I use regularly (loading my
.emacs file). That gives that day's CVS a good work out over the next
several weeks.

I complain once in a while, but in fact, people are pretty good about
checking that a change they commit works (or else they are good
programmers :-)
