    Now that the Wu release is done, it is time to review and include or reject this.

    Without it, if there is an error during configuration the output is (literally):

    installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables (see configs/<configname>/config-data/config.log for details).
    

    ie <configname> is shown as such. This is unnecessary annoying since to then actually look at the file one has to copy&paste the path then edit it by hand to replace <configname> with the actual configuration name.

    This is made (much) worse by simfactory have a default simulation name "sim" so that people who run "simfactory/bin/sim build" for the first time and receive this error do not even (always) know what the configuration name is to begin with.

    Hmm, apparently this was merged into master in git hash 387fae8c "Cactus: output actual path to config-info on failure" about three months ago. Apparently by myself.

    Oh well. Closing this ticket.
