Displaying the whole compile line is pretty useless in my opinion...

Indeed it is and when it errors (the only moment when you need to know the command that errored) it can be displayed as people said in other replies.

No, there may be errors that manifest themselves later in the compile run, such as omitting a -D_REENTRANT in one module that causes
failures at link time.

It's rare (perhaps not in your programs - ymmv).

To address your concerns, automake probably should run in a more verbose
mode, without any way to turn it off. Then you'll be sure to see the failure, right?
