Misunderstanding again, this time my fault, sorry.

What I meant was: even with
  make -s LIBTOOLFLAGS=--silent

there will be some leftover output done by libtool.  If somebody wants
to fix that, be invited to provide a (complete) patch (best including
testsuite amend; the stresstest in Libtool HEAD would probably come in

If you want all tools silenced which are called by make, then I suggest
to simply use
  make >/dev/null || make

Eric already mentioned the portability issue with your patch.

Hope that helps.
