Hi Nick,

The initialization error was coming when one of my files was being
evaluated.  If I don't require org-latex, the compiled version of org
will initialize.

*** OFF Require org-latex
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :tangle no
  (require 'org-latex)

However, evaluating (require 'org-latex) in *scratch* yields this
familiar error:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-function org-find-library-dir)
  (org-find-library-dir "org")
  (file-name-directory (org-find-library-dir "org"))

  (expand-file-name "scripts" (file-name-as-directory (expand-file-name "../contrib" (file-name-directory (org-find-library-dir "org")))))
  (file-name-as-directory (expand-file-name "scripts" (file-name-as-directory (expand-file-name "../contrib" (file-name-directory (org-find-library-dir "org"))))))
