You can't learn everything you need to know about GNU make by looking at
the man page.  For one thing, it's quite out of date.

I'm not interested in adding lots of individual new options like this.

However, I am going to be adding some kind of "verbosity control" option
that allows the user to more specifically select the kind of output that
is desired.  Probably it will end up looking more like the current debug
level output option rather than lots of individual options.

Obviously any command-line option would take precedence over flags in
the makefile.
