I am getting the following error from a freshly bootstrapped emacs

I *think* it may be something amiss with loaddefs

Try 'make -C lisp autoloads'.


I think you are on the right track.

I often build out-of-source, where you can clean by just deleting
everything. But, this does not clean either loaddefs.el or the elc
files.

'make bootstrap' *does* remove loaddefs.el and the elc files, even in an
out-of-source build.

When you referred to a freshly bootstrapped emacs, did you mean that
you ran 'make bootstrap'?

No, I mean build from a clean source tree. I rarely use make bootstrap
for this because you have to run configure first. Normally I clean with
git clean, or just delete the directory for out-of-source.

So, this looks like up a failure during updating rather than anything
else.

No, what happened is that the autoloads files got out of date and needed to be regenerated by 'make -C lisp autoloads', as I said in my first reply. This happens from time to time and is documented in INSTALL.REPO. It works perfectly well in an out-of-source build. If you delete your build directory, however, then you've thrown away your Makefile, and it's too late.

The only reason you aren't bitten by this more often is that Glenn periodically updates the autoloads. See, for example, his commit 3cade20.
