Removing these lines make Emacs compile mode unable to "jump" to the
source line mentioned in the warning or error message.  Filenames in
compiler output are relative.  Therefore, you need to know what
directory was "current" at the compiler invocation time.

The same true for any IDE that parses make(1) output.
