While misconfiguring toolchains, I noticed that one of the
diagnostic messages gave me a little less information than I'd
like about what I'd done wrong.  Displaying the glob pattern
that couldn't be matched turns out to make it a lot easier to
figure out what you did wrong.  (Answer: Not enough coffee.)
