How to save the output of make

I am running make and would like to save the output to a file for reference in investigating the errors. Tried make >> dumpfile and several variations of cat. Some output is recorded to my file but not all of it and not the various error messages. Thanks for any help.

make 2>&1 >> dumpfile
. This redirects std error to std out and appends your file.
