This is hardly the first use of this idiom.

The buildfarm does not use the -world targets, for several reasons,
* they don't exist in all branches
* they didn't exist when the script was written
* doing so would reduce the ability to tell the script to miss certain
steps on the command line
* not all members are set up to build the docs
I'm a fan of the -world targets (I created them, after all), but they
aren't always appropriate.

The MSVC build system has always been a bit different. It builds
everything that needs to be compiled in the make step. If you want to
rewrite it, feel free, but this seems a fairly minor difference.

This facility has been there for years (almost from day one of the
buildfarm, the archives go back to June 2005), and have been previously
mentioned here. There are four status mailing lists you can subscribe to
at <http://pgfoundry.org/mail/?group_id=1000040>. They can be got in
both individual and digest forms. They correspond to the following:
* all builds
* build that fail
* builds that have a different state from the last build
* builds that cause a state change to or from the OK ('green') state.
