A progress bar feature for the end user will be convenient. Just sort of a rough idea, like the lines in the makefile can be cached and can be compared against the number of lines that have been currently executed on it ,estimate the total time remaining based upon the time taken till now to reach the current line in the cached copy. Display a progress bar based upon the number of lines yet to traverse.
I feel that end user need not look at what is going on during patching, building or installation phase.
