Thanks.  At the end of the run I get the following prompt in the mini-buffer.  What is this looking for?  How do I cleanly abort this?

Add c:/home/jbrancier/pkg/emacs-21.3/site-lisp/cedet-1.0/semantic/wisent/wisent-java-tags.wy to target: :

emacs -q -l cedet-build.el -f cedet-build

with the lower case q.

1.  I opened up \cedet-1.0\semantic\semantic.el
2.  I attempted to 'Byte-Compile-Directory and although there were 0 .elc files, nothing built.
3.  I then attempted: emacs -Q -l cedet-build.el -f cedet-build, and an instance of Emacs started by the '-Q' option failed.

This is on Windows XP running emacs 21.3

Any suggestions?
