Yes, I was just saying it's not possible out of the box. FWIW, I'd rather have
one nice output style (at least with line that don't wrap) then several
options. For example, we can

1. Show just the first target built, and not possibly several produced targets
(each with long path).
2. Show targets in this style:
3. Show the file being compiled, not the result of compilation:

gcc.compile.c++ src/foo.cpp

(that would shorted the paths).

4. Remove the name of the action.
5. Add progress indicator:

10% compiling kdecore/kapplication.cpp
11% compiling kdecore/kurl.cpp

(Idea taken from
6. Something else.

Do the users have any suggestions here?
