Bug#511209: xbase-clients: xkbcomp produces unhelpful error messages

Package: xbase-clients
Version: 1:7.1.ds1-2
Severity: wishlist

$setxkbmap -print
xkb_keymap {
	xkb_keycodes  { include "xfree86+aliases(qwerty)"	};
	xkb_types     { include "complete"	};
	xkb_compat    { include "complete"	};
	xkb_symbols   { include "pc(pc105)+us"	};
	xkb_geometry  { include "pc(pc105)"	};

$setxkbmap -print | xkbcomp -
syntax error: line 1 of misc
last scanned symbol is: AudibleBell
Error:            Error interpreting include file "misc"
                  Abandoning compatibility map "complete"
                  Abandoning compatibility map "(null)"

xkbcomp fails because I have misc/ directory in the current directory. xkbcomp
should print absolute path of the file it failed to include (and mentioned it
found directory instead of file), it would help to resolve such problems
faster (and you can see some people suffering from this problem on Google).

Solution for `syntax error' (for people googling for the problem):
xkbcomp -R/usr/share/X11/xkb ~/.Xkeymap "$DISPLAY"
