Got it: 

the Mac OS X 10.2.2 update messed up file permissions all over
the place in a non deterministic way...
OK: not non deterministic - but nobody came up with a predictable pattern
on when this happens to whom, why, how, where...

Running 'fix permission' from Apples Disk Utility AND rebooting cleaned
it all up so i can now compile my own emacs again.
Trying to rebuild inbetween (after fix-permissions, before reboot) did
not work. apparently, some shared libraries were in memory in an inconsistent
state. There goes your uptime :-}

thanks for all your replies - Heiko
