Will do.

See Beman's post about his failure. And of course I mentioned examples
on the reference post below. But essentially it causes BBv2 to exit with
an error since it can't find the BPL target when other libraries/tests
depend on it. Instead of the build continuing to run, but with the
targets failing to build/run.
