This situation still seems to be the case in 2022.  The output of `make altinstall` has thousands of lines like

/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./Lib/test/__main__.py /usr/local/lib/python3.8/test
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./Lib/test/_test_multiprocessing.py /usr/local/lib/python3.8/test
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./Lib/test/allsans.pem /usr/local/lib/python3.8/test
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./Lib/test/ann_module.py /usr/local/lib/python3.8/test
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./Lib/test/ann_module2.py /usr/local/lib/python3.8/test
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./Lib/test/ann_module3.py /usr/local/lib/python3.8/test

For me, the problem this causes is that CI build logs get extremely long, so long that my CI build tools won't show the log in the browser anymore and it makes it quite hard to figure out where problems are happening.

It looks like the problem is simply that there are lots of `echo` statements in the Makefile.pre.in that could be conditioned on `--quiet`.  One small example (in the 'libinstall' target):


    if test -x $$i; then \
        echo $(INSTALL_SCRIPT) $$i $$b; \
        $(INSTALL_SCRIPT) $$i $(DESTDIR)$$b; \
    else \
        echo $(INSTALL_DATA) $$i $$b; \
        $(INSTALL_DATA) $$i $(DESTDIR)$$b; \

I don't quite understand how `--quiet` actually gets parsed and recognized by the Makefile, though.
