I'm not convinced: `compile' runs the command asynchronously, so the
jump is definitely done *after* compile, strictly speaking.  Maybe it
should just not say `compile', especially since it's also used in
circumstances where `compile' is not involved (e.g. sml-compile which
passes the compilation request to an inferior process running in
a comint buffer).

So, I'd prefer "during compilation" rather than "during `compile'".
