Egad, how could the highly-intelligent compiler folks at Cray and their
minions make such a bone-headed mistake?  The preprocessed output goes
to stdout; having the error messages go to the same place and thus
getting mixed in with it is -- how shall I say it? -- extremely
inconvenient.  Of course, returning a successful completion status when
serious errors have occurred is also more than a little inconvenient.
