I greped-out list of "not found" messages used in grass raster modules

grep -r -i "not found" */*.c |grep \"| sed "s/.*\"\(.*\)\".*/\1/g" 

Basicly, there are following slightly different messages:

messages with mostly with G_program_name(), some_map->answer
    %s: %s - raster map not found
    %s: <%s> raster file not found
    cell file [%s] not found
    vector map <%s> not found
    %s: <%s> not found
    %s: <%s> reference map not found
    %s: <%s> cellfile not found

messages with only some_map->answer
    %s - map not found
    %s - map not found
    <%s> raster file not found
    Input file [%s] not found.
    File not found: %s
    Terrain raster map <%s> not found!
    Raster map [%s] not found
    %s: base raster map not found
    %s: cover raster map not found
    Raster map or group [%s] not found
    Cell file [%s] not found\n
    Raster map [%s] not found

messages with special meaing of raster/vector map
    3dview file <%s> not found
    Old 3dview file. Region not found in <%s> in <%s>
    elevin cell file <%s> not found
    aspin cell file <%s> not found
    slopein cell file <%s> not found
    linkein cell file <%s> not found
    albedo cell file <%s> not found
    latin cell file <%s> not found
    coefbh cell file <%s> not found
    coefdh cell file <%s> not found
    Raster file [%s] not found
    contour cell file [%s] not found\n

My suggestion is:

There could come other messages during the time, but this four ERRMSG could cover all
"not found" messages listed above.

What do you think?
