------------------------+---------------------------------------------------
 Particulary for glibc compilation and testsuite, using make -s (or
 --silent if using long option) produce a much nicer log when you want to
 read only the essential.
 This could remove 'grep Error' need for the testsuite.
 Size decrease from 11 MB to 100kB for the compilation log and from 3MB to
 100kB (on glibc-2.11)

 For the test suite, I tested too using --no-print-directory and find log
 easier to read with that option. The line with make -C already show on
 which directory the work is done, so 'Entering directory' and 'Leaving
 directory' lines only overload the log.

 To give credit, where I saw glibc compiled and tested silently is in
 Fedora spec file.
