I think you're not looking in the right place.  Typically the log
for a botched compile looks something like this:

dependall =3D=3D=3D> games/boggle/boggle
    compile  boggle/bog.o
    compile  boggle/timer.o
       link  boggle/boggle

*** Failed target:  boggle

*** Error code 1

nbmake: stopped in /usr/users/he/src/games/boggle/boggle

Here the relevant error message is obviously "collect2: ld terminated
with signal 11", and it turns out that the reason is related to the
change in object format for the MIPS architectures lately.  Doing a
clean build fixed that problem -- this one was done with " -u",=

so old object files would be attempted used, and in some cases that
caused problems (I did not investigate in detail, since rebuilding from=

scratch cured the build problem).

Another example:

    compile  ofwboot/boot.o

*** Error code 1

Here the error messages are obviously those from the compiler which
point towards a parse error in sparc's ofwboot/boot.c.  The problem in
this case was that someone had left an extra right-parenthesis in an
arithmetic expression (which has since been fixed), and the compiler
complained as it should.
