My ultimate goal is to be able using the "-s" flags to silence all
parts, because sometimes i just want to build and view only ">>> *"
messages, errors, warning without anything else.

As example the "toolchain-external" target already do that when the
"-s" option is used.

I've silenced only this part because it was easy and it's anyway an improvement.

Maybe i can work on silencing other parts too if the feature is desired.
