#10 assigned new-feature

catch dependency-related errors in makefiles and explain remedy

Reported by: Fred T. Hamster Owned by: bugdock
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: feistymeow-nucleus Version:
Keywords: build, make, error, apt-get, dependency Cc:


usually builds fail in feisty c++ code due to a missing dependency.
when that happens, print out the dependency and how to install it, like:

this project needs dependency X, which can be installed with:
sudo apt-get install X

obviously this should use the most recent dependency list, which is being compiled.

from a dupe bug, another restatement of this:
need to tell about building.txt for build failures--
if the feisty meow build fails, tell the user about that file that tells them what they need, in feisty meow apex, called building.txt.
