I don't think master is broken, or that these things will become
better in the future.  One recipe to avoid hitting these problems is
to resync with upstream more often, because that minimizes the number
of Lisp files that need to be recompiled, and lowers the probability
of hitting some circular dependency with macros or somesuch.
