"make ctags" only generates the tags files which work fine with Vim.
Running "make tags" generates the TAGS files, which are designed to work
with Emacs.

The Vim packages do have emacs_tags support compiled in, so it should
work.  I'll take a look at why it isn't, but a workaround for now would
be to make sure you're using the tags files (make ctags) instead of the
TAGS files (make tags).  You can also remove the TAGS entries from your
'ctags' option to ensure Vim doesn't try to use them.
