Re: reducing verbose dependencies output

I didn't realize that depcomp was fooling with the command line.  I
agree with you that the most important thing is to show the actual
compiler command line.  That's exactly what I was trying to say before.
All the surrounding conditionals, shell scripts, and other scaffolding
is really only useful to see if you're debugging automake itself, which
most people are not doing :).

So, it seems to me that ideally we would add an option (--verbose) to
depcomp which would echo the actual compiler command line just before it
runs, and automake could pass that option (and not echo anything
itself, by default).

     Karl> I hate to say it, but it could be an option :(.

    Do you mean something like a Makefile variable (like in the
    aforementioned thread) or something else?

I was thinking of an automake option, but a make option would be even better.
