Most of the time, you only need to see the last 4 or 5. I think that I 
only look at one of my builds to see the "chmod 444 freebsd.cf" and 
fire up the next script.

BTW, If you add both of your kernels to /etc/make.conf, you would only 
need one buildkernel. The first one is the one that is installed. I 
have it commented now but I used to use

#KERNCONF=RUBY GENERIC

to build both and install just RUBY. I got so that I liked the logs 
separated and changed how I did things. RUBY is my fastest machine was 
designed to build kernels for other systems and then nfs_mount src and 
obj on the other machines and install them this way. When I strickly 
started shutting down to single user mode, it wasn't a normal option.
