When compiling, the output from kdesvn-build is not the output from
cmake.  So it's "feels" like you are running an automated script to
compile.  Compile errors and compile warnings are hidden.  If there's
a compile failure, kdesvn does not tell you what that error is and
continues onto the next module.
