Every error message is relative to the containing project.
In our solution structure this makes it difficult than it should be (for my tool) to determine the failing file if I build from the command line.

If the compiler supported an option to show absolute path names, this would be easily handled.

Already supported in Mono 3.0. Use -fullpaths compiler option.
