As long as the machine does not crash, you can re-run bulk after
cancelling it or it dying, and it starts fresh builds of any packages
which were not complete from a previous run.  If libX11 succeeded, it
keeps it, but if firefox was half way done compiling, it has to start
firefox over.  bulk does not rebuild the repo listing until the end, but
you could do that manually if you want.
