Philip said something about this on IRC.  I haven't been able to
reproduce it on Windows 7 or 8.  Not sure what OS he was using when
doing it.

Unfortunately I don't really have any suggestions.  I'll look into it.

Something like this is certainly within the realm of possibilities.  I
certainly know what a pain it is to get info out of the terminal on
Windows.  I'm not sure about all of the builds but I know the httpd
one (which by far has required the most work) generates it's own logs.
 There's really not much in the way of output from the actual script,
so if there are build logs from all the dependencies themselves that's
probably sufficient.  There's a lengthy comment about that in the
build_httpd() function of the script.
