I was going to apply this change:
-AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([foreign check-news dist-bzip2 no-dist-gzip])
+AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([foreign check-news dist-bzip2 no-dist-gzip silent-rules])

but, unfortunately, there seems to be a bug in automake: silent-rules
support is not compatible with --disable-dependency-tracking yet.  Passing
--disable-dependency-tracking option to configure causes garbage both in
silent and verbose output.  I'm going to report this bug, and I'd like to
avoid silent-rules until it is fixed.
