I can think of another place that belongs - someone on blfs stated that
their XFree86 installed even though the make world failed - I bet it was
the |tee to log the build that had the exit status of 0 (thus allowing
&& make install to proceed).

I'll have to do a test xfree86 that I _know_ will fail and see if that's
the case - and if exit ${PIPESTATUS[0]} would fix it ...
