The reason make World doesn't halt on errors is that the build process
takes a long time. The developers therefore do a make World 2>&1 | tee
makeworld.log and leave the machine; fixing errors afterwards. This was
exlained on the xfree86 mailinglist shortly ago.
IMHO this is counter-intuitive in comparison to the build method of
autoconf packages so we should use the above option.
