I think most problems comes from doing cvs update and then you get old .elc files left behind or you need to do make bootstrap again.A make that removed old .elc files and did bootstrap when needed is the ideal solution. The second part is probably very hard.

The endless tread mill of the broken build. It feels like being spat at. Sorry to be so "unhelpful", but I've got no desireor energy to keep debugging broken builds, or to keep "try makebootstrap"ing. I'm going through a very bad patch in my personal life, and I just don't have the energy any more, and I'm not prepared to do it."cvs update" followed by "make" MUST WORK NEARLY ALL THE TIME.Alternatively "bzr update", "make" working nearly all the time would beOK.This is a serious process bug we have, we've had for years, and we MUSTfix. If it's not fixed soon, I'm just going to give up on Emacs maintenance and bid the project goodbye. The pain level is too high.I've been interested in setting up an automatic build test environment for Emacs for some time. It would basically checkout the emacs sources on every checkin, build the sources and report the build quality(probably with some existing continuous integration software). I would also store a TB or something of past builds. Would that be of any help to you?Sorry, and all that.-- Joakim Verona
