Well, it is not what he was asking, but... maybe an acceptable solution, useful 
in other situations, would be, to filter the output of make through some Perl 
script.  I do this myself as a routine matter.  When people ask, why do you 
have a wrapper make.bat and not just call "make.exe" directly, I say, calling 
programs directly is like riding a horse without a saddle, it is possible..., 
but painful and not fun.  

So I have a wrapper, in which I prepare the call to make, and then take the 
output out of make and do whatever I want with it, for example, if make is 
called with parallel option, I save the errors output for the end, or 
suppress/interpret any error messages which my users find too cryptic.

a way to suppress printing out this command as its being executed?

There is no way, short of editing the code, to silence that message
