This patch does two things:

1) adds -w to the default CompileScript: make command, outputting the directory that make currently is in. Very useful when a package has a large source tree,

2) adds an extra note to the end of the crash message telling the user to include the actual error message in any email s/he sends to the list/maintainer.

Discussion

  • Similar error code for #2 is now in Fink 0.30.2. #1 is not really needed, though useful, but not enough to keep this open.
