How to suppress "Entering/Leaving..." messages when invoking make recursively?

The "Entering/Leaving..." messages when invoking another make by a make is kind of annoying.

Is it possible to suppress these messages and how to suppress them?

Best answer

For GNU make, it is controlled by options:

-w, --print-directory
Print a message containing the working directory before and after other processing. This may be useful for tracking down errors from complicated nests of recursive make commands.

Turn off -w, even if it was turned on implicitly.

So you can add the --no-print-directory option when invoking another make.
