I noticed this -- sorry I forgot to point it out on the lists.
Manually removing crtbegin.o from the emacs makefiles fixes it.

Actually, you only want the full CVS tree if you're going to be
developing, in which case you know what to do :) Casual users will
need only the "checked-out" copy (prefix=/usr and release=cvs tag=.),
as noted in the sample supfile. Perhaps this should be made the
default, at least when 1.0 is released.
