By sufficiently noisy I mean that the user should be able to see the preprocessor and library search paths and any defines provided via the command line so they can be sure that the right bits are being used.

The config.status file provides this information, and is in a form that makes it useful to the developer.

Not true. The config.status file only includes information produced by configure, and does not at all represent how the various build data sources were put together by the makefiles to build a particular object or library.
