Error: Could not open wad file \sierra\half-life\esf\pldecal.wad
Error: Could not find WAD file
Description: The compile tools could not locate a wad file that the map was referencing.
Howto Fix: Make sure the wad's listed in the level editor actually all exist

Error: Could not open wad file \sierra\half-life\esf\namek.wad
Error: Could not open wad file \sierra\half-life\esf\guru.wad
Error: Could not open wad file \sierra\half-life\esf\esf.wad
Error: Could not open wad file \sierra\half-life\esf\cached.wad
Error: Could not open wad file \sierra\half-life\valve\halflife.wad

do NOT add the pldecal.wad and the cached.wad to your wad files list since they are used for temporary stuff (right? right!) ... simply remove them from our list and it should compile

Well, unless your sierra folder is hanging in computer limbo, chances are its on the c: drive (main hard drive). So like DJ-Ready already said, change the path to c:/sierra/...
