The warning tries to tell you that you have a spurious "()" in the let
binding form, after the value you are assigning to count-func.

It doesn't mention the actual problems:
1) The let form's body is empty, while it should contain the code that
goes after it.
2) Replace that (cl-count ...) with (funcall count-func ...).

But what Drew meant, I think, if for you the create a prefixed function
alias, not local value binding. The former would just look better in
