Why don't you just use "make -s" if you don't want to see that?
The example output you show is not much less verbose than before.

I'm pretty suspicious of cute changes like this to the makefiles.
They too often have unexpected side-effects.  (I'm still pissed off
about having to manually remove objfiles.txt to get it to rebuild a .o
file, for instance.)
