Many modules have already been adding support for automake silent rules, but

I just pushed changes to pango and vte to enable silent rules by default.
That's a much saner default, and allows catching warnings easily.  I like to
suggest everyone does the same.

You just need to add this line to after AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE:


That does most of the job.  For custom make rules, you need to add $(AM_V_GEN)
to the beginning of the rule.  Read this for details:


1. For catching warnings -Werror is much better.

Don't get me started on that.

2. Silent AM unfortunately hides many things. Once I had problem with
tracing error because of that (I haven't seen CFLAGS/LDFLAGS passed to

make V=1

I guess however that might be the problem with SHAVE and it was fixed by
autotools silent mode.
