There are some people on Automake mailing list who dislike them intensely.
I wouldn't read into that a great deal of ongoing controversy.  Those of
us who happily use them just don't bother to engage in the argument any

I think there's general consensus that there needs to be a way to turn
them off and somewhat lesser but probably still reasonable consensus that
turning them on as an Automake-wide default is a bad idea, but I don't
think any of the maintainers are going to object to making it silent when
that's explicitly requested.
