The errors are ignored by the Makefile:

%.elc: %.el
        @$(EMACS) -q $(SITEFLAG) -batch -l ./scripts/$(PROJECT)-build.el \
                -f batch-byte-compile $< || :

This is not a clean way of doing things. If Emacs fails here, it is a
real error (i.e. there will be no .elc file), so make should _not_
ignore it, but abort at this point.

Gentoo includes a patch for the Makefile not to ignore errors
(already since Remember version 1.9):
Otherwise we could never be sure that the automatic build process has
installed all desired files.

But anyway, thank you for the great program and keep up the good work. :-)
