A couple of possible improvements, if you're feeling ambitious:

1. Link it to the version of the file that corresponds to the test's
   run time.

2. Take the compilation-error-regexp-alist from my emacs, which is a
   bunch of regexps that describe how to find the file and line number
   in compiler error messages, and use it to turn all of the error
   messages in the error logs into links to the right source line ;-)
