[isabelle] Show more LaTeX log when there is an error


maybe my LaTeX is chattier that other people’s LaTeX, but I get:

$ isabelle build -D .
Running Cantor ...

Unfinished session(s): Cantor
0:00:10 elapsed time, 0:00:17 cpu time, factor 1.70

which is quite unhelpful: The relevant lines are cut of by just 4

Maybe the build tool could be changed to show 10 or 20 lines more? Some
scrolling is definitely nicer than having to find the log file among
this outpu and copy’n’paste it.

And while we are at it: If the line mentioning the log file would be
printed _after_ the log excerpt it would be easier to spot.
