you always may stop/continue scrolling with Ctrl-S and Ctrl-Q .
Or you may use UNIX facilities to do it (depending on you shell):

csh#  make |& more
sh #  make | more 2>&1

About the missing files:
 this usually happens when the Makefile is not setup properly
 did you call  configure  befor running make? (you didn't tell us
 (in which project you got errors)
