Configuring -file-line-error would probably fix the problem.

I really hate this mess.  Perhaps we should write some auctex.sty or
similar (it is not needed just for LaTeX) that patches \input or the
equivalents and just keeps track of the current input file on its own,
putting out appropriate !name and !offset messages.

Or do something to make -file-line-error more often used.
