I only used the "missing library" error as an example.
 I do not suggest that a site should list each -l**
and its corresponding library.  Rather, the site would
tell you, "If you receive such a message, the problem
is that you are missing a library."  My hope is that
people can look for generic build error solutions so
they will have a starting point to troubleshoot their
own miscompilations.  It would be impossible to
specifically solve every error.
