It looks like there's an error in your .emacs.  Try launching emacs
with --debug-init.

I'm not a lisp expert, but you could simplify the loading of gnuserv
by doing the following to rule out errors in your conditional
statements.  Once you've narrowed down the problem you could start
adding the conditionals back to see whats breaking.  Just a guess.

(require 'gnuserv)
(setq gnuserv-frame (selected-frame))

The above works for me.
