How to keep `make' tabs open?

If I `make' a module then the `Messages' toolwindow appears and, for the
duration of the make, a new tab is present. I assume the new tab shows
the progress of the make. Is there any way to prevent that tab from
automatically closing? I'd like to be able to see what `make' did.

I don't see any config option anywhere, and I couldn't find anything
relevant in the Tracker.

If there were warnings or errors, the tab remains open, otherwise it is closed.

Thanks. I think I'll file an SCR to make this configurable (as it already
is for Ant builds).

But what's the benefit if the window stays open even if there are no errors or warnings? The compilation status is always shown in
the status line.

Yes, I only noticed a short time ago with a `make' that took longer than a
couple of seconds that the tab doesn't contain any output if the
compilation works OK.

I originally wanted to confirm that a new properties file had been copied
to the output path, and it seemed intuitive that the `make' output should
show this rather than having to use an external shell to check.
