[fdo-internals] Build scripts exit code

I've almost finished configuring the FDO buildbot
and one of the last issues I'm trying to solve is that build_linux.sh 
script(sh) eats the actual exit code returned from ./configure, make, 
make install etc. commands.
IOW, the build script always exits with successful Zero :-)

This is a problem for buildbot because the bot relies on commands exit 
code and depending on it reports steps as success or failure.

Do you mind if we fix the build_linux.sh script(s) to exit on failure of 
a command being executed and return real exit code?

Now if, for instance, build_linux.sh calls ./configure and it fails, 
execution moves to make; if make fails, execution moves to the next 
command, etc. IMO if previous command exists with failure, subsequent 
command should not be executed.
