I had some problems with bootstrapping and parse-time-string last night, which I didn't have time to debug fully, but I think it might be caused by the removal of a require for parse-time and addition of an autoload cookie instead.

If that is the case, I suspect that the code is setting some variable
in the file parse-time.

It appears to be a chicken and egg problem. Maybe it can be solved by a change to loaddefs-boot.el?

The code is in vc-cvs.el, and is a call to parse-time-string which is now autoloaded. The problem encountered is that when Emacs tries to save loaddefs.el after generating it, it loads vc-cvs.el and tries to run the code in question. But since loaddefs.el has not been written yet, the autoload does not work, and parse-time-string is left undefined.
