Not much
System: NetBSD 5.99.55
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
        make(1)'s "-j" command line flag causes the ".SILENT" attribute
        to be ignored for command lines that begin with "-".

$ cat
test: .PHONY
        @echo testing 1
        -echo testing 2
        echo testing 3

$ make -f test
testing 1
testing 2
testing 3

$ make -f -j1 test
testing 1
echo testing 2
testing 2
testing 3

That "echo testing 2" should have been suppressed by the ".SILENT"
