I think it is needed. Suppose someone wants to copy and paste the build log or paste the error and search for it. Any alternative solution then?

Currently not supported.

No, thats not possible, except by creating a make shell script that runs
the pre-build command and then the real make and put that into PATH
before the normal path of make.

The other thing you can do is doing it inside the buildsystem, e.g. in
cmake, autotools or qmake.
