That's the first step to CVS addiction ! :)

It means that there was an error during the byte-compilation of
later-do.el. It's not critical, Emacs can live pretty well with non
byte-compiled files. I usually don't bother compiling EMMS, and I don't
even know if it's byte-compilable at all.

I have the same error, so I'd say that it's not your fault ;)

Elisp packages don't require to be byte-compiled. They're just a bit
faster to load. (load != run).

My advice : don't byte-compile it :)
