Thanks for providing verbose logs of those test failures.  All three
fail after the point emacs is called, but it gives no error message.
The emacs reports itself as:
| GNU Emacs 21.2.1

Can you try out the following, in an otherwise empty directory, and post
all output?  Thanks.

echo "(provide 'foo)" > foo.el
echo "(setq load-path (cons nil load-path))" > script
emacs -batch -q -l script -f batch-byte-compile *.el
echo $?
ls -l
