(NB: A package, which compiles without warning doesn't mean it is being built correctly.)

What work does it cause except for using --disable-silent-rules at
configure time or V=1 at make time?
Exactly this is the problem.

The problem isn't the support for silent rules. The problem is that some packages are enabling it by default
Indeed. What makes the situation worse is some upstreams shipping "common" aclocal-macros which enable it by default. This cause quite some amount of surprises when analysing buildlogs of packages which for whatever reasons run autoreconf/

because it looks like Linux and Linux is cool.
