I can't reproduce this.  Last night's build of the trunk for me, on
i686-pc-linux-gnu, produced a log containing

Comparing stages 2 and 3
Comparison successful.

This is the output for the trunk and for the 4.2 branch.  For the 4.1
branch, we get more verbose output, showing all of the compare commands.
HJ, perhaps you were looking for the verbose output and didn't see it?
