Step 1:  Go back in time to before you started the build.

Step 2:  Install a utility called "screen" on that machine.

Step 3:  Start a screen session, and start your build from within that.

Step 4:  Detach from that screen session by typing ^A then pressing D.

Step 5:  Reattach to that screen session at any time with `screen -r`.

Sorry about the "go back in time" part.  I guess you'll know for next
