I usually do

  make web &> make.web.log

This log file is around 18MByte if run from scratch...

What about catching the log output of calling lilypond in files too
instead of sending it to stdout/stderr?  We already have so many files
that a few more files like `lily-6ca2b194.log' don't really count.  It
would make watching `make web' much more convenient probably.
