Configuration: --debug option available in this phase also
Until now, each time there was a problem in the configuration of Maneage'd projects and debugging was necessary, we had to take the following changes: - Run the configuration on a single thread ('-j1') to see the building of only the problematic software. - Disable the Zenodo check manually by commenting those parts of 'reproduce/software/shell/configure.sh'. Because the internet connection wastes a few seconds and is thus very annoying during repeated runs! - Manually remove the '-k' option that was passed to Make (when building the software). With the '-k', Make keeps going with the execution of other targets if something crashes and this usually causes confusions during the debugging. Doing the manual changes within the code was both very annoying and prone to errors (forgetting to correct it!). With this commit, the existing '--debug' option has been generalized to the software configuration phase of Maneage also. Until now, it was only available in the analysis phase (and would directly be passed to the 'make' command that would run the analysis). When this option is used, and the project is in the software configuration phase, the Zenodo check won't be done, it will use one single thread ('-j1'), and it will stop the execution as soon as an error occurs (Make is not run with '-k').
