Abbreviated build output is nice.  I personally like how the linux
kernel build system uses the basic command names themselves for the
abbreviation.  For example, instead of "compiling", use "CC".  That
way it should generally be shorter in output than using the English
word, and save even more diskspace.  True, it may make it more cryptic
again, but people who build their own wine should know what CC is for
