No, that's not correct. The packages are built in a "clean"
environment (-vanilla -no-autoloads). So it should be possible to
build the packages without any packages installed.
Could you try this for me (without your patch):
make (whatever target you used before that gave you problems)
And let me know how that goes.

I'm not sure if the 'make autoloads' will fix this, I certainly hope
so. Let me know if it doesn't.
I had already used 'make autoloads' nevertheless it didn't work
without the patch to liece. From you suggestions only 'make distclean'
was missing, I have added this now but it doesn't make a difference.
Currently I build the packages using
cp Local.rules.template Local.rules
on a freshly installed Linux system, i.e. there is no previous version
of the packages installed. First I build XEmacs and install it, then
the packages like described above. Without the patch to the liece
Makefile this fails.
