    macros: Globally add --disable-silent-rules to configure
    
    Various projects have been adding AM_SILENT_RULES from Automake to
    their Makefiles for "developer convenience"; the goal being that they
    see warnings more easily.
    
    Now really the right way to do this is to have a make wrapper (or an IDE)
    that knows how to filter out warnings, but let's leave that aside for now.
    
    But for debugging builds, we really need the full log data.  Being
    able to see exactly how e.g. libtool is being run helps a lot for
    debugging link problems as an example.
