Hmm.. I don't actually read it: I also watch it scroll and pick up a few
symbols here and there that allow me to figure out if things are going
smoothly or not.

When it doesn't scroll, the first screen is filled immediately with text
that I generally don't care about (most build procedures I use seem to
start with a lot of "boilerplate output"), so I have to scroll manually
to see the rest.

Of course, using C-x ` will jump to the interesting spot in either case.

Has someone tried to use my new compilation-auto-jump-to-first-error?
It stops the scrolling as soon as the first error is spotted.
