Having looked at the code that generates this message, I suggest that the
wording in your sentence above is far more informative.

I suggest this piece of information also be in the error message. Better
yet, instead of requiring the user to run it again and parse the output,
figure it out in the code and print it.

Can you point me to the location in the documentation that describes
"--debug-building"? It's the first I've seen it.
