Post your compile log.

I'm trying to remember if the compilers used to suck less...

The .err file is kind of useless since hlbsp fails to write to it when [whatever happened] happens.

"Portal file xxxxxx does not exist...."

This can be a tough one. If the error causing it is clearly named in the .log of the compile with coordinates, then it is easy to fix. However, if the error is not showing up, it is time to go hunting. You could look at Token too large or some of the other errors. Check your Sky environment name, Wad count, ect. You may even try reinstalling a new copy of the compile tools in case they got corrupted, it has happened!
"LoadPortals: failed to read header" or LoadPortals: couldn't read.... or LoadPortals: not a portal file or LoadPortals: reading portal.... or LoadPortals: portal.... has too many points

This can happen in compile: an error occured while loading the xxxxx.prt file. It could be corrupted, missing (if you have a leak), or your map is too complex for bsp to generate a valid .prt file. Somehow the portal file made by the other previous compiling programs got messed up, or the reading program is messed up. Usually a Qtools problem, rare on Zoner's compile tools, but most often happens between BSP and VIS.
