I just failed to build lilypond, because I forgot to rerun configure,
etc after checking and building an experimental branch.
While the mistake is obvious, the log obfuscates it by adding a
wagonload of output after the error is stated.
I would have expected to see the error last. Is it possible to improve the log?
Full terminal output attached.


This is probably because you're running multiple threads with the -j5 option and so the extraneous output at the end comes from the other threads yet to complete. If you can't discern the error and don't want to direct the output to a file for later checking, then running a single thread _might_ make for more understandable output.
