EUDC fails with BBDB

when configuring EUDC to query BBDB for recipient completion in Gnus, it
failed with the following error :

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (invalid-function (macro lambda (vector) (list 
(quote aref) vector 4)))
  bbdb-record-phones(["Alain" "Kirche" nil nil nil nil ("address@hidden") 
((creation-date . "2004-08-31") (timestamp . "2004-08-31")) ["Alain Kirche" nil 
#<marker at 4815 in .bbdb> nil]])
  eudc-bbdb-extract-phones(["Alain" "Kirche" nil nil nil nil ("address@hidden") 
((creation-date . "2004-08-31") (timestamp . "2004-08-31")) ["Alain Kirche" nil 
#<marker at 4815 in .bbdb> nil]])
  eudc-bbdb-format-record-as-result(["Alain" "Kirche" nil nil nil nil 
("address@hidden") ((creation-date . "2004-08-31") (timestamp . "2004-08-31")) 
["Alain Kirche" nil #<marker at 4815 in .bbdb> nil]])
  mapcar(eudc-bbdb-format-record-as-result (["Alain" "Kirche" nil nil nil nil 
("address@hidden") (... ...) ["Alain Kirche" nil #<marker at 4815 in .bbdb> 
nil]] ["S\x8e9\ bastien" "Kirche" ("S\x8e9ki" "Sebastien Kirche" "Seki") nil 
nil nil ("address@hidden" "address@hidden" "address@hidden" "address@hidden" 
"address@hidden") (... ...) ["S\x8e9\ bastien Kirche" nil #<marker at 4938 in 
.bbdb> nil]]))
  eudc-bbdb-query-internal(((lastname . "kir")) nil)
  eudc-query(((name . "kir")))
  eval((eudc-query (quote (...))))

You can  see that BBDB found  2 records in  my database, but there  is a
problem while formatting the result.

You can reproduce the problem  with BBDB installed and for example these
commands in the scratch buffer :
(require 'bbdb)
(require 'eudc)
(eudc-set-server "localhost" 'bbdb t)
(eudc-query '((name . "foobar")))

If your query does not find any record, the problem does not occur, else
you should see a backtrace similar to mine.

On  gnu.emacs.help,  Kevin  Rodgers  and  Stefan  Monnier  gave  me  the
explanation  :  it  is  due  to  the  fact  that  eudc  (more  precisely
lisp/net/eudcb-bbdb.el) was byte compiled  at bootstrap time long before
bbdb was installed.

As a  workaround, one can  add a (eval-when-compile (require  'bbdb)) or
simpler  (require   'bbdb)  at   the  beginning  of   eudcb-bbdb.el  and

But at the  bootstrap time there is  still a problem as eudc  is part of
Emacs and not BBDB.
