well (recalling previous discussion), the reason that Ralf's complaining
is that while it makes working on your program simpler it makes
finding bugs in _automake_ harder.

If you think seeing those long gcc command lines in a *coreutils* build
will help you track down bugs in automake, you're welcome to use "make V=1".
It's just no longer the default.

Besides, considering that automake is so robust and stable these days,
why should I sacrifice coreutils development efficiency for the
dubious promise of increased ease of spotting automake bugs?
Even if by "bugs in automake", you mean "bugs in coreutils'
files", it's not a worthwhile trade-off.

It sounds as if you're agreeing with me.
