Sorry, I don't understand the problem.  "M-x compile" runs the command
asynchronously, which is why there's a need to reposition point after
each chunk of the process output was read, especially if the user
wants an illusion of screen output scrolling away.  But "M-!" runs the
command synchronously, so the process output appears in its entirety,
and you need to go to the end only once.  Where's the problem?
