  Is there a way to turn off echoing the compiler output when building a
package in pkgsrc?  It would be useful to be able to use the scrollback to
actually see what as been installed after you install a "big" package,
such as e.g. gimp.  I noticed you can set ECHO_MSG to lose the "``===>''
style prompts", and am looking for something similar.

 (I suppose you could set ECHO_MSG to echo to a file or a fifo or
something and get at least some record of what happened, but I'd prefer a
real solution.)
