bug#17627: 24.3.91; Spurious "Warning: the function `cl-member' might not be defined at runtime."

The add-to-list function has a compiler macro that uses 'cl-member' in

tree with the maint branch checked out:
rm lisp/ob-tangle.elc lisp/org-src.rlc
Note that the warning only seems to be printed when org-src.elc (which
is required from ob-tangle) is already present (i.e. during the first

(byte-compile-preprocess): Use it.
(byte-compile-file-form-defalias): Try a bit harder to use macros we
can't quite recognize.
So I'm guessing that this is no longer applicable and am closing the bug
