Did you pipe the console to a log file? If so, load the log file into a text
editor and search for "***" (without the quotes). Any matches that turn up are
errors that need to be addressed. I've been compiling x from cvs and it's quite
possible for the compile to terminate normally with no hint of an error...
unless you look over the compile log file.

I pipe the console to a log via:   make World >& world.log
