In `glilypond', I added an `exit 1' in `Makefile.sub' when a Perl error
occurs.  But I suppose that this is not right because it might terminate
the whole installation process.

It would make sense to install this Perl error handling at a single space
somewhere in the configure place.

Has anyone an idea how this could be made or where one can learn how to
do this.
