Set autotools to error/sleep settings so that they are not run when being erroneously triggered. Likewise make libtool-silent when libtool has been used.
I use the macro quite a lot since some automake versions have the tendency to try to rerun some autotools on a mere make even when not quite in –maintainer-mode. That is very annoying. Likewise, a user who installs from source does not want to see doubled compiler messages.
I did not put an AC_REQUIRE(MAINTAINER_MODE) in here - should I?
Download the latest version of ax_maintainer_mode_auto_silent.m4 or browse the macro’s revision history.
