Description

when using make -s commands aren't listed in output, which is good 99.99% of the time -- until a command fails, at which point people ask "what was the command line", and you have to say "sorry, I don't know, lemme try to get it".

Since pymake is supposed to be more flexible, it'd be great if it could do the right thing™

steps:
1. setup pymake
2. make a change to some random .cpp file deep in the build
3. run pymake with -s

expected results:
build failure message from compiler
commandline used by pymake which failed

actual results (hypothetically)
build failure message from compiler
