Yes, I am aware it is on the man page, however I was thinking of something

 -s, --silent, --quiet       Don't echo commands. Equivalent to .SILENT rule

in the make --help.

How do you feel about adding a --no-silent, --no-quiet option to overrule
all .SILENT and @ commands in a Makefile?  I can take a look at writing this
patch, if it will be accepted.
