You have it now, and it is easy to generate.

"scripts/buildall.sh" will do it for you
by running "scripts/mkpkg" on all listed packages

Calling it "buildall" is not 100% correct, 
since a few packages are not built.
database and qtopia, X windows related packages 
are notable exceptions as well as java and games.

The comments after OK/FAIL etc, are manually added.

buildall.sh creates the log directory and 
then the log/OK and log/FAIL.
log/FAIL contains one log file per built package.

Ask the compiler writer, I was also confused, but that is
maybe appropriate for a package named "libconfuse" ;-)
There is a comment just before the "error".
"cc1: warnings being treated as errors" so the maintainer
wants to make dead sure that the lexer.c is real clean.

No, I just did an ls of package to start with, and never bothered to
update, There is a significant number of packages that does not build
so until I run out of FAILs, this just adds compile time.
Feel free to add package

Since I am not running a regular make, problems could occur,
If the dependencies in the Makefile are incomplete.
The make maybe runs in the correct order for other reasons.

Have build logs for everything.
For the release toochain, the mpg123 build 
aborts with a segmentation fault.
