They’re better for builds done by the developers of the upstream
software on their own systems where they know what they’re doing.
And even then, it’s a big maybe.
Every other human is a packager or porter (in a broad sense… if
I install Linux From Scratch then compile something I want to use
on it, I’m one), and those *require* verbose output, e.g. to verify
that the buildsystem didn’t eat $CFLAGS.
I can live with an optional 'silent' build option, but I personally
think everyone – especially(!) the package maintainers – should have
no need to use it.
