If you went up to that point, it means that the changes basically
worked. You may verify it by using
  ./boot/ocamlrun ./ocaml -I stdlib
But apparently some dependencies were not  yet solved.
I cannot exactly see where the problem comes from, but
I would suggest one more "make bootstrap" to clear the situation.
