This is not a good place to report failures to build Emacs.

This error message comes from this snippet in titdic-cnv.el:

          ;; Decode the buffer contents from the encoding specified by a
          ;; value of the key "ENCODE:".
          (if (not (search-forward "\nBEGIN" nil t))
              (error "TIT dictionary doesn't have body part"))

Is it really true that CCDOSPY.tit you have has no line that begins
with "BEGIN"?  Otherwise, why doesn't the search-forward call succeed?

Did you try "make distclean" before building?
