Hi Achim,
  I managed to fix my installation (at least so far) with the addition of 

(require 'org-install)

Thanks for your comments as they led me to try this solution.  One question: 
when you wrote "outdated autoload definitions" did you mean that I should be 
using some other form to specify the load path (I was loading from 
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/org-7.8.09/") rather than from (add-to-list 
'load-path "~/.emacs.d/org-6.36/lisp")?

  Regarding the installation instructions: At first I started here 
(http://orgmode.org/manual/Installation.html#Installation) but since I am 
running on windows 7, I have no access to "Make".  I want to avoid installing 
cywin as it typically fails to track windows 7 x64.  As far as I can tell, make 
is unnecessary as well since you can hand compile all the files (as I described 
in my bug report). It's my mistake that I failed to notice the requirement to 
add (require 'org-install).

  Here's a suggestion that might help others who encounter similar problems:  
Augment the installation description 
(http://orgmode.org/manual/Installation.html#Installation) with a short 
description for windows users (that avoids the use of make).
