Not really... Using an exit status is better, I agree. I'll make
the change.

Also, GuessWhere right now returns the full pathname, so, for example,
CC will be set to /usr/local/Gnu/bin/gcc instead of just gcc... Does
anyone have trouble with that? GuessWhere does the former instead of
the latter simply for future possible use...
