I am trying to build the latest cvs emacs (fetched a couple of hours
ago, as well as about a day ago) and am encountering this problem in
the build process.

I have configured it with

--with-gcc --without-xpm --cflags -Id:/Utilities/GnuWin32/include

The configure and build process proceeds smoothly. The new emacs
executable is created, but then it fails at the point below.

Generating autoloads for international/mule-cmds.el...done
Generating autoloads for international/mule-conf.el...
Generating autoloads for international/mule-conf.el...done
Generating autoloads for international/mule.el...
Generating autoloads for international/mule.el...done
Generating autoloads for international/ogonek.el...
Generating autoloads for international/ogonek.el...done
Local variables entry is missing the suffix
make[1]: *** [autoloads] Error -1
make[1]: Leaving directory `D:/emacs/lisp'
make: *** [bootstrap-gmake] Error 2

I see that the file (in alphabetical order) after this is quail.el and
thought that it could be the problem and temporarily renamed it to
something else. However, that was not the case.

I am using mingw gcc and make and following instructions as in 

This has worked before. Anybody else seeing a similar issue?
