CVS does not bootstrap

After updating to 
today's CVS snapshot, Mon, 2004 Mar 29  12:26 UTC
in /usr/local/src/emacs-test/ [rather than the more usual /usr/local/src/emacs/]
using the command   cvs -z6 update -dP
I ran

     make distclean

    ./configure --with-type1 --with-x-toolkit=gtk --with-pop \
    --prefix=/usr/local --with-sound=yes \
    && time make bootstrap

which resulted in this error:

    Loading vc-cvs (source)...
    Wrong type argument: stringp, nil
    make[1]: *** [autoloads] Error 255
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/emacs-test/lisp'
    make: *** [bootstrap] Error 2

However, the vc-cvs.el file evaluates without reported error, 
as does the alphabetically previous file, vc-arch.el, and the 
alphabetically next file, vc-hooks.el.

Also, there is no  
file although I thought that file is supposed to be rebuilt
automatically if non-existent.

Please, could someone who knows more than I replicate this problem?

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you.
