I actually tried adding an am__verbose_RM, and had to notice that
it cannot be done.

                ${am__verbose_RM}rm -f *.lo

Well, now what. *.lo is neither available in $@ nor $^. The same
goes for mv. So these have only the verbose form.

Now as to why I did not do $(AM__AT), eh, simply because I want to
see *something* (either "MV foo -> bar" or "mv foo bar"), but not
On top, the mv you quoted is part of the compile line, so is not
visible in the first place ;)
