If I quit a build part way through a build, I'll clean up the extracted 
source directory for the package that hadn't completed, and then just 
run 'make' again.  I've not encountered any problems doing this.  Note 
though, that if you quit part-way through chapter 6, you'll have to 
manually mount all of the virtual kernel filesystems prior to resuming 
the build.
