+(and --watch to watch and existing build if you ctrl-c out of
+the display before it's done).</p>
+<p>The build is now smarter about extracting only one copy of the
+source code (in build/sources) and re-using it for multiple builds,
+building out of tree (via cp -rs to create a tree full of symlinks
+so the package doesn't need native out-of-tree support).</p>
