The issue is that by default the dependencies are on the .elc files. For an unexpected error, the compiled versions of these and some other files, are not in emacs_common. To correct this, before I'm providing a corrected package, which will not occur in the immediate future, please install emacs_el package to use the un-compiled version of the files.

Thank you for the feedback. The easier workaround for me was to manually create the subdirs.el (it's not very difficult).

;; In load-path, after this directory should come
;; certain of its subdirectories. Here we specify them.
(normal-top-level-add-to-load-path '("vc" "url" "textmodes" "term" "progmodes" "play" "org" "nxml" "net" "mh-e" "mail" "leim" "language" "international" "gnus" "eshell" "erc" "emulation" "emacs-parallel" "emacs-lisp" "cedet" "calendar" "calc" "obsolete"))
;; Local Variables:
;; version-control: never
;; no-byte-compile: t
;; End:

Indeed, for this file, it's easy.
However, there are other missing .elc files for which it's easiest to install emacs_el package than to recreate them by hand or copying them from other source.

the July 15th 2016 solves this issue by merging common, .elc, with .el
