I noticed that after upgrading GNU Make to 4.3 messages such as these:

make[1]: Entering directory '/.../test/a'
make[1]: Leaving directory '/.../test/a'

started to appear when building my project. The Makefile is a complex one
which is generated by CMake. CMake tries to suppress such output by default,
by inserting ".SILENT:" in the generated Makefile. Starting with GNU Make 4.3
this directive appears to be ignored, as illustrated with this toy project:

$ find . | sort
.   (directory)
./a (directory)

$ cat Makefile
all: a
a: %:
        $(MAKE) -C $@

$ cat a/Makefile
all: a
        echo hello
