And a thought is all you have to make those cold sweats go away, unless
you capture the build output.

I would strongly suggest doing something like the following for every
step of the process:

        [build command] 2>&1 |tee _build_command.log

or something similar, so you can get a "warm fuzzy" feeling and relay
any errors to whomever you want to ask for help.
