No, but I also see no colors in the build.log file. :-) I do not need any 
progress report, because I only care when it is finished.

Yes, this is already taken care of in %cmake in rawhide, it makes at least the 
compiler flags visible in the make.log. Previously this could be achieved 
with VERBOSE=1 in the make invocation. This is also written in the cmake 
guidelines btw. If you read my complete mail, you can see that I complained 
about the progress percentages, because they fill up the build.log.
