Description

When looking at the mail_msg for a build, it can be difficult to tell, at first glance, whether it succeeded or failed. We should include an explicit build status at the top of the mail_msg so that it is clear whether the build succeeded or not. Perhaps something like:

==== Nightly distributed build started:   Sat Nov  6 13:01:11 PDT 2021 ====
==== Nightly distributed build completed: Sat Nov  6 13:11:37 PDT 2021 ====

Build status: FAILURE

==== Total build time ====

real    0:10:25
...

or

==== Nightly distributed build started:   Wed Dec  8 00:53:17 PST 2021 ====
==== Nightly distributed build completed: Wed Dec  8 01:20:29 PST 2021 ====

Build status: SUCCESS

==== Total build time ====

real    0:27:12
...

It might also be worth having nightly output a message to stderr in the case that the build fails or is interrupted. At present I believe it is totally silent either way.
