I don't understand why this is such a controversial issue. Just have
automake prefix all commands in rules that are not already prefixed with @
or - with $(PREFIX) (or some other variable.) Have default for PREFIX be
empty so the current behavior is unchanged. If someone wants to change
the output, they can redefine it with something like PREFIX="@echo
'building $@ ...'; ". Minimal makefile 'bloat', no change to the default
behavior, and the flexibility for the output to be whatever is desired.
