Ok, I have simulated a bootstrap failure by killing make during
bootstrap.  This made the system to send the message to

Feel free to send comments about the message contents.

To be complete I am attaching the script used for this purpose.  But
be warned: This is currently just a fast and ugly bash hack.  You may
do with the files what you like as long as it conforms with the GPL
and you remove my email address from the NOTIFY_FAILURE variable
_please_.  But it might make sense to do a somewhat cleaner
implementation for general usage.  But comments for the current script
are also welcome.

The file autobuild.common is the one that matters.  This file should
never be called directly, but by a configuration script.  I also
attached a sample of such a configuration script for reference.  Up to
now I was too lazy to write real documentation. ;-)
