Yes, I normally do it like this: 'make |& tee log' (or if you're using an
impoverished shell, 'make 2>&1 | tee log').
The build seems to be working smoothly for most people at the moment, so
I'm fairly sure this is something specific to your setup somehow. Could
you check for things like local changes:
$ ./darcs-all w -s
$ ./push-all http://darcs.haskell.org/ --dry-run
