    Enable automake's "silent rules" if they are available. · 5ccc1240

    Automake version 1.11 and above provide a build mode where
    each build command is replaced by a single-line annotation.
    Since autotools build lines for libraries typically each fill
    an entire terminal screen, this mode makes it easier to keep
    track of build progress, and warnings stand out more clearly.
    
    For debugging the build process, the old behaviour can be
    recovered by running 'make V=1' at bulid time, or by passing
    --disable-silent-rules to configure.
    
    Since Automake 1.11 is still very recent, we only invoke
    the AM_SILENT_RULES macro if it is defined, allowing fallback
    to the old behaviour under previous versions of automake.
