[Rd] Consistency of messages from R CMD {check,build,install}

A minor gripe/request: Could all R CMD package tools not at the very least be consistent in indicating when
they are done, as in
* DONE (packagename)

or at least
R CMD build leaves one hanging, not knowing whether it has completed or it is time to get another coffee.

Some checking/building processes take a while, so it would also be nice if more of the info lines
ended with ... OK
