Hi Max,

Yes, I agree, having all those "skips" interleaved with the actual
compilation commands is not very useful.

I've changed build2 to:

1. Print the skip count in progress.

2. Print a one-line summary of skip count at the end.

Can you give it a try (the staged version) and see how it feels?
