Capture makefile errors in shell script

Hi,
I have a bash script which calls a few "make". I would like to know whether the makefile failed with any errors. How do I do that in the script?

Thanks,
S

The above explained if you're new, "Run make and redirect both the errors and the standard output to 'log'. If the exit status of make '$?' is not equal to 0 ( -ne 0 where exit status 0 means it ran successfully) then say "Build failed" and show log file. Not that you needed it but someone else reading it may. :-)
