While the idea of dumping to a text file is a good one, you should
always fix errors in the order they appear.  The reason is because often
times errors shown further down are simply the result of the compiler
getting confused by earlier errors.  Fix the first error and many times
most or all of the rest will dissappear.

you can also use "make &> filename" (does the same thing).
