That's a more reasonable estimate...

My friends know that I use automake to maintain a few packages. The most
common question I get is, "Is it possible to make the output look like
the linux kernel?"

With all of that said, I still personally prefer the verbose output. To
me, that is always the most useful.

Actually I prefer the concise output (and vary rarely need more than config.status in addition to the make output). That's even accounting for stepping through error/warning messages automatically (perhaps emacs has some status line that deciphers _what_ the long command was attempting to do - I haven't implemented _that_ in vile).

But I'm aware that very few packagers use --disable-echo (though google isn't very cooperative at yielding an estimate ;-)
