Nice try, but it doesn't give any hint to me. After commenting out the
USE_LANGUAGES line in wm/icewm/Makefile.common I get:
===> Configuring for icewm-1.2.25
=> Fixing locale directory references.
WARNING: [subst.mk] Ignoring non-text file "./src/Makefile.in".
configure: WARNING: If you wanted to set the --build type, don't use --host.
If a cross compiler is detected then cross compile mode will be used.
configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
*** Error code 77
I cannot see any hint here. What about printing the warning (which is
currently in config.log) also to the terminal, so the user can see it
By the way, I would prefer to only create the fail-wrappers when
PKG_DEVELOPER is set. For a typical user (even more for unexperienced
users) this is just annoying.
