It needs to exit in case of error. It's better if it's verbose in this
case (autogen.sh/configure is pretty verbose anyway)

Since we error out with the failing command above, I don't think it's
necessary. And I expect autoreconf to do some meaningful checks too.

No, it's just useful to know what autoreconf is doing, but we can drop it.

I like silent build of source code, because it helps to spot code
errors. In case of  the build system itself, I don't mind if it is
verbose when it needs to be setup. Ie, a verbose step that should spot
all potential build issues before get you to a silent state, where you
want only what concerns the code.

No, dropped.
