Seconded, because
  - the silencing that you have in mind can also be useful for projects that
    don't use this particular 'bootstrap' script,
  - making the change in gnulib-tool is certainly more reliable that through

When I use --enable-silent-rules, there is not much output that is not like

  CC     strstr.lo
  CCLD   libgnu.la

So for me, the status quo in gnulib-tool is quite fine. If you have
different goals, possibly to change *all* Makefile rules to be of this

  GEN    target

form, feel free to implement a gnulib-tool option


Since the desired output is a matter of taste, I expect that this option
could take additional values in the long run, not only 'normal', 'minimal'.
