[haiku-development] Re: Can't build Haiku in BeOS R5 PE again...

-q tells jam to stop on first error. -a tells it to try and recompile
even stuff that doesn't need to be updated. Thus if you don't include
-q it will try and build as much as it can and skip over anything that
causes an error. It's not a problem of -q per se, it's doing exactly
what's expected.
