	Hopefully - git master now doesn't tell you to execute a command you
can't run ;-) when we get a build failure it should say something like

Compiling: vcl/source/app/brand.cxx
/data/opt/OpenOffice/loffice/vcl/source/app/brand.cxx:80:2: error: #error Error !
dmake:  Error code 1, while making '../../unxlngi6.pro/slo/brand.obj'

        Oh dear - something failed during the build - sorry !
  For more help with debugging build errors, please see the section in:

 it seems that the error is inside 'vcl', please re-run build
 inside this module to isolate the error and/or test your fix:

cd /opt/OpenOffice/loffice
source ./LinuxX86Env.Set.sh
cd vcl

when you have isolated and fixed the problem re-run 'make' from the top-level

	With a suitable variant for multi-threaded building; great bug to get
fixed :-)
