Follow-up Comment #7, bug #58013 (project make):

Posix is explicit that -s and .SILENT are both about command lines.
If we wanted to be strictly posix conformant 'Entering directory' should be
printed even when -s is specified.
if .SILENT is stretched to suppress other messages such as 'Entering
directory' the question arises which other messages should .SILENT suppress?
e.g. if the directory is not executable make prints "permission denied".
Should "permission denied" be suppressed? What about $(warning ) messages, "is
up to date" messages, etc?
