Currently the build log contains the output of prior build attempts, which is terribly confusing.

If we're OK with changing the behaviour of --build-log, then it's just the matter of changing AppendMode to WriteMode.

@dcoutts Are you OK with this? It's confusing to have old output in the build log as you might think that the reason the last build failed was due to something that actually made a prior build fail.

I say just do it. I doubt anyone depends on the current behavior of --build-log.
