Viola! Figured out the problem. The message is from Spade. We had
someone else have this puzzling problem but never figured it out.

The problem is that you are you using some of Spade's "modules"
without using Spade itself (which does the necessary initialization).
That is, you didn't include a 'preprocessor spade:' line, but you did
have 'preprocessor spade-*:' lines. Add the 'preprocessor spade:'
line and your problem should go away.
When we do some more Spade development in a couple months, I plan to
restructure the code a bit to give a better error message in this
