I've just tried with the latest CVS HEAD code and met this
strange error.

At first, I tried to byte-compile Fontifier.el by:

  M-x byte-compile-file RET ~/Fontifier.el RET

then, Emacs signals this error:

  Symbol's value as variable is void: t

Next, I run Emacs under gdb (by M-x gdb), typed C-c C-z to
interrupt it, and then:
(gdb) p Qt
$1 = 137939193
(gdb) xsymbol
$2 = (struct Lisp_Symbol *) 0x838c8f8
(gdb) p *$2
$3 = {
  gcmarkbit = 0, 
  indirect_variable = 0, 
  constant = 1, 
  interned = 2, 
  xname = 136507507, 
  value = 137939193, 
  function = 137939169, 
  plist = 138484157, 
  next = 0x0
(gdb) watch ((struct Lisp_Symbol *) 0x838c8f8)->value
Hardware watchpoint 4: ((struct Lisp_Symbol *) 137939192)->value
(gdb) c

then, did this in Emacs:

  M-x byte-compile-file RET ~/Fontifier.el RET

then, Emacs stopped as below:

Hardware watchpoint 4: ((struct Lisp_Symbol *) 137939192)->value

Old value = 137939193
New value = 144315101
print_preprocess (obj=144315101) at print.c:1415

The lines around print.c:1415 are:

  1412            /* If Vprint_continuous_numbering is non-nil and OBJ is a 
  1413               always print the gensym with a number.  This is a special 
  1414               the lisp function byte-compile-output-docform.  */
  1415            if (!NILP (Vprint_continuous_numbering)
  1416                && SYMBOLP (obj)
  1417                && !SYMBOL_INTERNED_P (obj))
  1418              PRINT_NUMBER_STATUS (Vprint_number_table, 
print_number_index) = Qt;
  1419            print_number_index++;

I have no idea why the value of Qt is changed at L1415 (note
that I compiled print.c without optimization).

At last, after restaring Emacs, I deleted the local variable
section at the tail of ~/Fontifier.el and byte-compiled it
again.  The compilation finished with these warnings.
