BTW, isn't it even common to not print debug / trace / notice
messages /at all/ by default?

I thought there was some "be quite on execution but verbose on
error" principle, but with google I cannot find it anymore...

I think make is an exception here. Many tools don't tell anything
in positive case (gcc, ld, install...).

BTW, is there a way (except -n) to make GNU Make show
commands starting with '@'? Not even make -d shows them, which
IMHO is not very convenient...
