By joining the commands with &&, it will prevent the following commands
from running if the previous command fails. i.e. if a make fails, it
won't continue with a make install (which would obviously fail as well).
To see this in action, try these two commands:
false && echo 1
(you won't get any output!)
true && echo 1
(you should see the 1 echoed)
