Did the make command really complete without errors?

I always try to keep a log containing all the output because the
screen scrolls by, and later, I wish I could see the errors that went
by so that I can search google to get clues.
Something like this:
make 2>&1 | tee my_build_log

As long as you didn't do 'make install', it is possible to remove the
directory extracted from the source tarball, then extract the source
tarball again, and do the package over with a clean sources. I think
that is the way to do it when you have reason to believe that you
could have made a mistake in typing your commands.

I think you would want to start over 6.12. GCC-4.1.2 ... not the
beginning of chapter 6.
