Verbose commands

The following constructs will work. This is how it will need to be 
rendered in the Makefile files. Not sure where to make these changes in 
the source code.

Example of chapter 6's linux-libc-headers

Old commands were rendered as follows:

@( time { $(CHROOT1) 'cd /jhalfs && source envars &&
 >>/jhalfs/logs/064-linux-libc-headers 2>&1' ; } )
2>>logs/064-linux-libc-headers && \

Using 'tee' we can have output on screen as well as in log files:

@( time { $(CHROOT1) 'cd /jhalfs && source envars &&
/jhalfs/lfs-commands/chapter06/064-linux-libc-headers | tee -a
/jhalfs/logs/064-linux-libc-headers 2>&1' ; } ) | tee -a
logs/064-linux-libc-headers 2>&1 && \

I'll go see if I can find the right locations in the source to make 
these changes. Will send a patch in case it's deemed an acceptable way 
of doing things.
