Summary0004510: please report "module M not found" instead of "unbound value"
DescriptionWhen recompiling a program after a period of time, if I get the error message "unbound value", I can't tell whether SomeLibrary's API has changed (perhaps renaming foo), or simply that SomeLibrary is no longer on the include path. A (simple?) change to the error message would make this much more informative.

In the case where SomeLibrary is found, but there's no foo, I suggest reporting something like "no value foo was found in module SomeLibrary".

Starting with 3.12.0, the compiler reports "unbound value" in the first case, and "unbound module SomeLibrary" in the second case.
