Some compilers may have different error message output formats depending
on whether they're run INSIDE_EMACS or not.

For example, ant has the -e option to output emacs friendly formatted
error messages.

(Of course, emacs can also adapt itself to the various compiler error
message output formats, cf. C-h v compilation-error-regexp-alist)
