My vote is for a solution that doesn't add to that burden.  Most of the output is just distracting, but then on the other hand one does want to get some sense that the build is making progress.  It would be really nice, I think, to get just one over-printed line that shows what directory is being worked on and that newlines are generated only by error, warning, and perhaps informational messages.

In the "normal" case (--enable-mm is present and mm is supported, and --enable-mm is not present and mm support isn't) the build system would stay quiet.

I do not like new configure options because it becomes just another 
untested path in the build system. We have so many now that are not 
tested and that it is a concern.
