Maybe it's me, but this just isn't a problem that I can see.  I run a 
`make build >build.log 2>&1' on /usr/src on one machine, and NFS-mount 
/usr/src to another of my machines.  I get what I would expect from `tail 
-f build.log'...

Not trying to say that the underlying cause doesn't need to be addressed, 
just that it's not as big and obvious to some of us.
