(This was discussed in the "way forward on bootstrap data" thread,
but we didn't do anything about it.)
Traditionally genbki.pl has printed "Writing foo" for every file
it writes out. As of 372728b0d that is a heck of a lot more files
than it once was, so you get this:
$ make -j8 -s
All of PostgreSQL successfully made. Ready to install.
which seems a tad excessive, especially in a -s run.
I think we should drop the per-file notices. But there are a couple
of alternatives as to what to do exactly:
1. Print nothing at all. That's more in keeping with our modern
build practices, but maybe it's too big a change?
2. Print just one message like "Generating postgres.bki and related
files", and I guess a second one for fmgroids.h and related files.
I don't have a strong preference. Opinions?
