re: output try..
make -s
make VERBOSE=0

Im not sure about static linking, though even on scons this is a pain,
I think we should move to including libs and start blender with a
shell script, also since some libraries make it fairly hard to static
link with them (no option to build static by default for eg.)
Nevertheless We can probably get cmake to link statically link libraries too.
