Sorry to post once again with the broken email headers,
but I think I should remark on this.

It is probably widely unknown that --disable-dependency-tracking has an unexpected side effect: It makes the "silent rules" feature of automake-1.11 useless (more and more projects are beginning to use this feature). One may consider this as a bug of automake-1.11, but this is how it is now, and I do not know whether there are plans to change it in future versions of automake. Regards Martin Väth
