It is in the background, but if there is output from the process,
you will see it.

A solution could be "make install clean >/dev/null &", but I'm sure that
it not will be very wise, I dont know what happens if a config screen
shows up, and next point is if you get a fault, it's gone with /dev/null.

Why don't you just use another tty?
