Just for the record..

Now the build of current master (ac9a931...) fails with:

Loading button...
Loading loaddefs.el (source)...
Wrong number of arguments: autoload, 1325
Makefile:540: set di istruzioni per l'obiettivo "emacs.exe" non riuscito
make[1]: *** [emacs.exe] Errore 127
make[1]: uscita dalla directory "/tmp/mingw-w64-emacs-git/src/build-x86_64-w64-mingw32/src"
Makefile:398: set di istruzioni per l'obiettivo "src" non riuscito
make: *** [src] Errore 2

All the loaddefs.el files are:

$ find . -name "loaddefs*"


$ cat ./src/emacs/lisp/loaddefs.el
(autoload 'xref-collect-matches "xref" "\
Collect matches for REGEXP inside FILES in DIR.
FILES is a string with glob patterns separated by spaces.
IGNORES is a list of glob patterns.



while for the others

$ cat ./src/emacs/lisp/.../loaddefs.el

(provide 'loaddefs)
;; Local Variables:
;; version-control: never
;; no-byte-compile: t
;; no-update-autoloads: t
;; coding: utf-8
;; End:
;;; loaddefs.el ends here

Maybe just retrying builds..

In any cases this kind of failures are rather recent. I have built master on MSYS2 for months without any failure and since, say, first decade of February they occur..

but when I visit it with Emacs, 'A LOT OF "APPARENTLY" EMPTY SPACE' is a
lot of "^@" characters.

Yes, that's what happens in these cases.  So the problem is still
present, sigh.  Unfortunately, it stopped happening on my system, so I
cannot debug it.

To solve this simply copy ldefs-boot.el over loaddefs.el, and rebuild.
