 (defadvice load (before debug-log activate)
(message "(Tip from Kai G): Now loading: %s" (locate-library (ad-get-arg 0))))

Well, that gives absolute file names alright but I think I must have
confused the issue in my previous post.  The defadvice DOES NOT
report the loading of site-start.el even when the defadvice is
preloaded from the command line with
  emacs -l whats_loading.el

I don't understand why.  But to compensate for that lack of report I
put this at the end of site-start.el:

  (message "finished loading => 
/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.el") (sit-for 1)

What I wanted to know was how to change that line so I don't have to
put the absolute filename manually.  In other words. How to make the
last `message' line above report absolute filename by itself
 (message "finished loading => "(SOMETHING HERE TO REPORT FILE NAME) (sit-for 

I want this because the defadvice DOES NOT report when site-start.el
is loaded.

 emacs -l /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/whats_loading.el &

 (`whats_loading.el' contains the defadvice as modified and shown above)
Notice in the output of *Messages* that loading of site start el is
NOT reported by the defadvice.  The only indication is the message
line shown above at the end of site-start.el:

  emacs -l /usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp/whats_loading.el &
