The following hack from http://usefulinc.com/edd/notes/CVSEmacsOnDebian
helps me:
emacs-snapshot doesn't seem to define some symbols that various modes expect.
Here's a nasty hack to get around this. I don't understand why I needed to do
this, and I couldn't find the "right" place to do it. But this works. Add this
file as /etc/emacs-snapshot/site-start.d/01emacs-snapshot-fixes.el and then
dpkg-reconfigure emacs-snapshot :

  (setq load-path (append '("/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp") load-path))

  (defconst flavor 'emacs-snapshot
                      "A symbol representing the particular debian flavor of
emacs running.
                    Something like 'emacs20, 'xemacs20, etc.")

Best, Alex
