I haven't had any need for that, but on the rare occasion that you might 
need that there is "make VERBOSE=yes".

write_msft.c:590: warning: 'ctl2_alloc_importinfo' defined but not used
write_msft.c:628: warning: 'ctl2_alloc_importfile' defined but not used
write_msft.c:1048: warning: 'ctl2_find_nth_reference' defined but not used

It doesn't give the path, so that approach is useless except when 
building one directory on its own.
