Once the whole thing is done, we could say how many warnings occurred along with the finished message. Not sure what's the appropriate way to count them though, since they happen between bytecomp and warnings.el.

A progress indicator is certainly doable, though its implementation will have to wait until we decide how to do the installation process.
