Yes, you're right about using the script(1) utility.  I usually
run builds either inside script(1) sessions, or with something to
the effect of:

    env MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/big/obj \
        make buildworld buildkernel 2>&1 | tee logfile

which is more or less the same.

Your step-by-step explanation in the previous post was nice :)
