'Unidentified error' error in Xcode

Occasionally in my current project the build fails, bailing out with the usual message:

- Command/Developer/Private/jam failed with exit code 1
- Build failed (1 error)

However, no particular error is specified. As far as I can tell it happens during linking. A clean and rebuild doesn't fix the problem, but backing up to a previous version of the source usually does. So far though I haven't been able to identify where exactly the error was introduced.

Am I missing something obvious? What exactly does it mean when Xcode reports a build error but provides no information about the error?

Thanks,

Jesse

On the build pane, there is a button at the botton with dotted lines on it (right next to the yellow triangle). Click that to pull up the build log and see what the problem is. XCode isn't perfect it won't give a nice error message for everything.
