font-lock-builtin-face not found?

Apparently, font-lock mode has changed a bit.  But, I have never heard of 
font-lock-builtin-face so it's been awhile.  You can do a search/replace of 
essl-sta.el.  Here is a list of the faces.

ESS[STA]			Status
font-lock-keyword-face		good
font-lock-type-face		good
font-lock-builtin-face		bad, replace with font-lock-reference-face
font-lock-variable-name-face	good
font-lock-function-name-face	good

Give it a try and let us know.  

Thanks, Rodney
