--quiet option not carried through to config.status

When building GCC, I often pass --quiet to the top-level configure
script.  However, I sometimes find the need to blow away the build tree
and rebuild from scratch.  When this happens, I use config.status -V to
find out what options I passed when the build tree was first set up. eg:

  $ ./config.status -V
  configured by /home/bje/source/gcc-trunk/configure, generated by GNU Autoconf 
    with options " '--disable-bootstrap' '--enable-languages=c,c++'

If I configured this tree at the outset with --quiet, this will never be
recorded in the  config.status output and I must remember to append it
when reconstructing the configure command line.  This may well also
apply to other configure options.

A bug?

Cheers, Ben
