Re: upgrading to potato problem

output of the command starting with the problem lines follows:
Byte-compiling pcl-cvs-lucid.el...
While compiling pcl-cvs-fontify in file /usr/share/emacs20/site-lisp/pcl-cvs/pcl
  ** assignment to free variable mode-motion-hook
  ** reference to free variable current-menubar
While compiling the end of the data:
  ** The following functions are not known to be defined: popup-menu,
    event-window, event-point, mode-motion-highlight-line,
    set-buffer-menubar, add-menu
Wrote /usr/share/emacs20/site-lisp/pcl-cvs/pcl-cvs-lucid.elc
sed -e 's@PCLDIR@"/usr/share/emacs20/site-lisp/pcl-cvs/"@g' < pcl-cvs-startup.el
 > startup.el
Errors were encountered while processing:

Any ideas? What needs to be done?
