All, I am forwarding this to the list for the record. Apparently the issue is caused with the bzr version of emacs.

Hi, the problem is that file lisp/g-client/greader.el contains a spurious "e" after the variable definition of greader-contents-rest-url, which makes byte-compilation fail. The problem appears only with Emacs from BZR. It wasn't noticed with previous Emacs versions, because these used to define a global variable "e" (for Euler's number, 2.71828...). This variable was renamed in the BZR version in September this year. Kind regards Ulrich ----- End forwarded message -----
