Backlog #3933

Make get_xmlrpc_config a bit more verbose in case of C++ errors

At the moment, the checks performed by get_xmlrpc_config at configuration time, to detect xmlrpc-c C++ build options, will only report whether builds are succesfull or not, and so which recipe worked.

This isn't easy to debug, in case of failures, when building happens inside a chrooted environment or similar (typically with pbuilder/cowbuilder for Debian packages generation).

I think it could be interesting to display the logs instead of silently discarding them.

See the proposed patch in debian/patches/verbosesconsrecipe.diff committed in

Thanks in advance.
