Summary:                    "make menuconfig" unusable with colormake
Description: 
With MAKE=colormake, calling "make menuconfig" (or calling "colormake
menuconfig" with MAKE unset) results in the screen being cleared, and then
one gets:

--8<--8<--8<--
#
# using defaults found in .config
#

interrupted(11)
make[1]: *** [menuconfig] Error 1
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
-->8-->8-->8--

It might be a problem in colormake as well, but I guess it could be
handled at least more gracefully by the busybox build system.

Happens with 1.9.2 and 1.10.0 at least (both of which not being available
in the "product version" drop-down list anyway).

Hmmm...

Colormake
---------
This is a simple wrapper for making the output from make easier to read
(more colorful), and errors easier to find in messy compilations.  It was
inspired by Micheal T. Babcock's excellent logcolorize program.

It most probalay got utterly confused by "make menuconfig"'s output which
contains ESC sequences etc. I am not volunteering to fix it...
