I'd argue for reverting this patch, the new macros pull in the automake
silent rules anyway. shave is only needed for those running automake 1.10.
for drivers the noise isn't as bad and having the shave macros is just dead

see also alanc's email on the xorg-devel list proposing the removal of shave
from X for 1.8.
