add some more context to errors locating the native engine binary #6575

You can get "no space left on device" errors from writing too many things to /tmp -- if that happens to occur as you write the native engine binary to disk from a pkg_resources.resource_stream(), all you see is "no space left on device". This is happening on my arch linux laptop for whatever reason but has happened on OSX as well.


Catch IOError and OSError in Native#binary and wrap them in an error message with the attempted path being written to.



except (IOError, OSError) as e:
raise self.BinaryLocationError(
"Error loading the native engine binary from path {}: {}".format(lib_path, e),

"loading from" is possibly a little misleading here; what it's actually doing is unpacking the native engine binary to that path...
