It would be nice to know which command is actually failing. To do that, ninja 
should be invoked as "ninja -v ...". Once we know the failing command, 
probably somebody else can shed some light about the problem.

Unfortunately, I can't quickly tell you what to modify "in the right way" to 
always pass the -v parameter to ninja. However, if you want to try a quick and 
*REALLY DIRTY* hack (at your own risk), you could use a proxy command to add 
the parameter:

As root, move /usr/bin/ninja to /usr/bin/ninja.orig and use this 
/usr/bin/ninja instead:

/usr/bin/ninja.orig -v "$@"

Don't forget restore the original "ninja" as soon as possible.
