Try using the full pathname to your emacs:

/usr/local/bin/emacs -batch ...

or whatever is appropriate in your case. You may be picking up
a wrong emacs.

Try also -Q: -batch implies -q but it might be a problem in the
site-start.el stuff.

Finally, --debug-init will probably not help in this case, but you might
try it in any case before giving up and rebuilding/reinstalling emacs
(unless somebody has a better idea?)
