The cfgmaker script sends the progress output on STDERR, file descriptor 2.
In order to redirect this to a logfile, you need to redirect this and not
STDOUT (file descriptor 1, the default).  Hence, if you just use the normal
redirect, it wont catch this output.

Under UNIX, you would use:

cfgmake foo 2>>/tmp/logfile

to redirect stderr, but I don't know what syntax the DOS world uses.
