Quite a few of the packages are redirecting compiler messages
to /dev/null. I fail to understand why anyone would want to have such a
stupid default. Having just converted my desktop from i386 to alpha I am
more than ever interested in what the compiler might have to say about
the software I am running..
Is there some easy way to change this behaviour?
And another question; Is there some trick I can do when compiling pkgsrc
in emacs and want to jump between warning messages? It seems that emacs
is fooled by the chroot()ing being done by buildlink3.
