Hi Thomas,

Thanks for telling me there is no portable flag for doing so.
I am now using AC_SUBST() to set the value of STREAM and append `
$(STREAM)>/dev/null' to every make command. If the user configure with
--enable-verbose-compiler, then STREAM will be set to 0, otherwise
STREAM will be set to 2. This keeps the flexibility. Does it sound
