"Failed to load interface for ..."

How about changing it so --make is the default?  I always use it.  To me, that makes it logical as the default.  Of course there are reasons not to do this, such as not breaking peoples build scripts, and no doubt others I'm overlooking at the moment.  A flag to select the old behavior would take care of the build script problem, especially if it were also possible to use an environment variable (instead of, or perhaps available in addition to, a command line flag) to select the old behavior.  (It isn't old, obviously, but I'm sure everyone knows what I mean.)
