You mean a permanent failure because of wrong configuration, permissions, bad 
$CCFLAGS or similar - or a temporary failure because of disk full, resources 
exausted,...?

In the case of permanent errors I don't think it matters because compilation 
compilation of postfix uses the same configuration and will most probably fail 
too.

Do you think makedefs must be safe against such temporary failures or do you 
care about a group of problems I did not think about?

Kind regards,

Gerd
