Ah, thanks.

There's a few build systems that can hide output from users; for
example, kbuild, cmake and autotools. Usually the way to enable the
output is "V=1" (kbuild and autotools) and "VERBOSE=1" (cmake).

Perhpas something more standard should be used to keep the
questions/noise to a minimum. Or maybe, use both the OpenSSL way and
the other ways for minimum disruption to current workflows.
