Subject: libtool ignoring compile errors??

I was just trying to upgrade my pine when I saw the following scroll by:

/usr/pkg/bin/libtool cc -O2    -Dneb -DJOB_CONTROL -DPOSIX -DMOUSE  -c
cc -O2 -Dneb -DJOB_CONTROL -DPOSIX -DMOUSE -c -fPIC -DPIC main.c
mv -f main.o main.lo
cc -O2 -Dneb -DJOB_CONTROL -DPOSIX -DMOUSE -c main.c >/dev/null 2>&1

I'm wondering what this output redirection is good for (other than for not
showing errors). Can someone enlighten me?
