 Well, this behavior is fallout of fixing the PR.
 And I claim it is a bug -- the mk/bulk/printdepends should not
 write any errors unless the errors are real problems that
 should be fixed.  I have no problem with "show-depends-dirs"
 writing errors in this case, but then "printdepends" need to
 suppress the errors, or use some other mechanism.
