I think that's fine.

Just as a vaguely related point that doesn't actually have a lot to do
with this --- there's one place where I quite like the verbosity:
sometimes I build from the archive on a machine that doesn't have
autoconf, and I run autoconf on a machine with access to the same disk.
After running configure on the build machine, I have to make some
timestamp file on the other machine to get he headers sorted out (only
the first time after configure.ac changed).  So it's useful to see what
that is.  However, I have a feeling I end up digging in the Makefile
anyway.  There may be a better solution to this.
