looks basically good.
File make/website.make (right):
make/website.make:8: quiet-run = $(findstring s, $(MAKEFLAGS))
I think I'd still rather have this be:
quiet-run = TRUE
or True or true or however you do this in make
make/website.make:10: quiet-string=-q
can this name be more descriptive?  like quiet-option ?  (I'm not overly
fond of that suggestion; I'm just trying to spark your imagination)
File scripts/build/ (right):
scripts/build/ suppress_output = ''
could this be a boolean instead?
scripts/build/ suppress_output = ' -terse '
set the boolean here
scripts/build/ cmd = "TEXMFOUTPUT=%s bibtex %s %s" %
(tmpdir, suppress_output, tmpfile)
maybe make an extra var here:
  suppress_output_command = ''
  if suppress_output:
    suppress_output_command = ' -terse '
scripts/build/ if (suppress_output != ' -terse '):
if suppress_output:

the reason for all this is that I don't like seeing stuff like the line
above; it feels "fragile" to me.  Not that I ever expect the
command-line option of bibtex to change, but still...
File scripts/build/ (right):
scripts/build/ # PH note - I've just commented this out,
since it's so not-helpful
I suggest removing it entirely.
File scripts/build/website-known-missing-files.txt (right):
scripts/build/website-known-missing-files.txt:1: ancient-notation.itely
What's this file?  Didn't we already have this file in the previous
