I've done some digging and found that xemacs-base/auto-autoloads.el
(which is provided by xemacs-all-packages) seems to be the offender.  If
you do:

$ cd /usr/share/xemacs/xemacs-packages/lisp/xemacs-base
$ sudo mv auto-autoloads.el auto-autoloads.bk.el
$ sudo mv auto-autoloads.elc auto-autoloads.bk.elc

and try the xemacs package build, do you see the error?
