Description

Automake now has an option to enable silent-rules. I tried it and the output looks like

make  all-am
  CXX    Vector.lo
  CXX    VectorBase.lo
  CXX    VectorConstView.lo
  CXX    VectorMutable.lo
  CXX    VectorView.lo
  CXXLD  libutility.la
  CXXLD  libyat.la

In order to enable this two things are needed. 1) We need to add it silent-rules as an option in AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE. 2) The user needs to configure with switch --enable-silent-rules, in other words, even if we do the change the default behavior will still be the current behavior.

I'm not sure if I think the silent mode is very useful, but on the other hand I cannot see that it would harm to offer that option.
