If you really want to reduce verbosity, you can't avoid making it a
configuration-time or run-time option, not an automake-option, otherwise
you are forcing people not liking your style of "verbosity", to patch
around into your sources.

Did you try setting "MAKEFLAGS=-s" in your environment?

Frankly speaking, I am still far from finding your intention helpful.
Such "non-verbose" makefiles are a massive PITA, for example during
Fedora package reviews and when debugging broken Makefiles.
