Ah, I see.  You could have done this:

mandatory1 && mandatory2 && { not_mandatory >/dev/null 2>&1 ;
mandatory3 ; } && mandatory4 etc.

The { bracketed group } will return the exit status of the last
command in the group, so that lets you chain them all, but ignore the
exit status of "non_mandatory"

e.g. this prints "yes"
true && true && { false ; true ; } && echo yes

Now I get this output:

+ bakefilize
./bootstrap: line 48: bakefilize: command not found
+ '[' -n '' ']'
+ '[' -z '' ']'
+ echo

+ exit 1

which is better, but I think the placement of the set +/-x commands is
still off.

You should be able to reproduce this like so:
ln -s /bin/false bakefile
PATH=.:$PATH ./bootstrap

just "rm bakefile" when finished.

If the second part fails I see this:

+ bakefilize
+ bakefile_gen
[1/1] generating autoconf from ./mysql++.bkl

no changes in Makefile.simple
+ set +x
aclocal: couldn't open directory `/usr/local/share/aclocal': No such
file or directory

(not sure about the warnings, but the aclocal error is because I have
no /usr/local/share/aclocal directory, bakefile isn't installed under
/usr/local, so I've modified bootstrap to use a BAKEFILE_ROOT dir,
which I can override:

that syntax won't work in traditional "sh" so for portability it should be:

if [ -z "$BAKEFILE_ROOT" ] ; then

I changed the aclocal call to use -I $BAKEFILE_ROOT/share/aclocal/ and
I set BAKEFILE_ROOT when running boostrap.
