Hello Petteri, thanks for the report.

I'm re-labelling it as a 'wishlist', because what it highlighs is
"just" an automake limitation, rather than an "intrinsic" bug.

Also note that your report prompted me to think about a more general
incompleteness of the current APIs for the 'silent-rules' support;
