What is the ouput of C-hv emacs-wiki-default-page? It should return
WelcomePage, if emacs-wiki is setup properly. Does your Wiki directory
exist? Have you customized it? You can use customize-group: the group
name is emacs-wiki.

The problem is somewhere else since there is no way your copy of emacs
doesn't have defvaralias because it is a built in function:

,----[ defvaralias ]
| defvaralias is a built-in function in `C source code'.
| (defvaralias NEW-ALIAS BASE-VARIABLE &optional DOCSTRING)
| Make NEW-ALIAS a variable alias for symbol BASE-VARIABLE.  Setting the

| getting the value of NEW-ALIAS will return the value BASE-VARIABLE has.
| Third arg DOCSTRING, if non-nil, is documentation for NEW-ALIAS.  If it
| is omitted or nil, NEW-ALIAS gets the documentation string of
| BASE-VARIABLE, or of the variable at the end of the chain of aliases, if
| BASE-VARIABLE is itself an alias.  The return value is BASE-VARIABLE.
