      Looks like your make program outputs terminal sequences to e.g. display
      colors? Try explicitly setting your terminal to somthing dumb for make.
      It shouldn't then output those chars:
      TERM=vt100 make ...

      Your pattern doesn't look right btw. I think what you want to search for
      is :%s/^[^/]*//

      Your pattern ^*\/ is actually looking for line start followed by a '*'
      followed by a slash, which is obviously not what you need.
