This is now fixed with this patch series:


It does mean that “The following derivations will be built” can be
printed several times during a build.  That’s a natural consequence of
having dynamic dependencies (grafts) in the graph: we can’t always
statically determine what’s going to be built.

‘with-build-handler’ also has to do with continuations, only in a
different way.  :-)
