I don't recall that discussion.  What was the problem back
then?  I just now checked POSIX 1003.2-1992, and the wording
it uses for diagnostics is the same as the POSIX 2008 wording
you quoted.  So I don't think the wording is mandated by POSIX.

If I had to guess, I suspect the problem was related to
existing build procedures that expect a particular wording.
That exact same wording has been used since Yacc in 7th
Edition Unix (1978), and it probably goes back even further
than that.

Still, it would be helpful to double-check this, if you
can recall the discussion in question.
