pcmanfm fails just after "make install", but only when "set -e" is
present in its .SlackBuild.

I have noticed some SBo scripts have the same problem in -current if
they contain "set -e" (alas I've lost the list :-/ but I will test
again ASAP). Package seems to be built and installed correctly
(except files copied after make install) but .tgz is not created.

An similar example was "my" htmldoc package: in -current it failed, so
I've used "|| exit 1" for "make" and "make install", in the last
uploaded update, and it was successful.

I'd say 13.0 doesn't have these problems (AFAIR) so it seems to be
related to bash builtin command(s) in recent bash packages (but I
couldn't say why and where ...).
Maybe, for the future, would it be worth to replace bash's "set -e"
with a selective bunch of "|| exit 1" for untarring, configuring,
compiling and automatic installing only?
