Building pkg-config files always happens with silent rules; doesn't respect --disable-silent-rules

If I configure gstreamer 1.14.4 or 0.10.36 with --disable-silent-rules, silent rules are disabled, except for the part that "builds" (copies) the pkg-config .pc files; this part always displays e.g. " CP gstreamer-1.0.pc" instead of the actual cp command like I wanted it to.
I've attached what I believe to be the correct fix for gstreamer, but it looks like the problem affects the plugins as well and should be committed to each of them. I did not check all of your repositories so I don't know where all the fix is needed. I did see that gst-libav already includes this fix, and that some others like gst-editing-services and gst-rtsp-server appear (based on looking at the source code only) to have the opposite problem of always using non-silent rules. It would be good to get the pkgconfig/Makefile.am files of all of the repositories that use it to be consistent.
