My init.el includes the bootstrap commands:

(unless (require 'el-get nil t) 
      (url-retrieve-synchronously "") 
    (let ((el-get-install-branch "master")) (end-of-buffer) (eval-print-last-sexp))))

When I compile init.el, I receive a warning that says that the function end-of-buffer is designed for interactive use only.

If I substitute (goto-char (point-max)) for (end-of-buffer), that warning goes away.
