I don't think so. What you consider makes you "lose sight of the bigger
picture" is just a drop in the bucket compared to output of the building
process of many C/C++ programs. Without --verbose, the output is simply:

Building native extensions.  This could take a while...
Successfully installed yajl-ruby-0.8.2
1 gem installed
Installing ri documentation for yajl-ruby-0.8.2...
Installing RDoc documentation for yajl-ruby-0.8.2...

... doesn't look too helpful, does it?

Yeah. I've noticed this redundant `mv' in several PKGBUILDs, hence the fix.
