The top level configure produce by autoconf 2.59 fails to
pass --quiet to itself recursivly if ac_recheck requires
reconfiguration. The cygwin patch changes some .in/.ac files
which will cause configure to rerun on first make invocation.
Untar bash-3.2.tar.gz source, apply cygwin
bash-3.2.39-19.src.patch, configure with --quiet,
type make clean and watch all the configure checking messages
Running autconf 2.61 on the top level configure.in to produce
an updated configure seems to take care of it

Thanks for the report. However, the cygwin patches to bash are more
properly discussed on the cygwin list, until such time as they are ported
and posted to this list.

This behavior is expected. If you apply the cygwin patch, you have to
rerun autoconf, or make will do it on your behalf. configure --quiet is
not a persistent operation, so there is no way to tell make that you
originally configured quietly, and want any rerun of autoconf to also run
quietly if timestamps are out of date. I suppose that I could have
prepared the cygwin patch to also include the (properly timestamped)
changes to configure, so that you wouldn't have to rerun autoconf; but as
configure is a generated file, the cygwin patch is much smaller by
excluding it from the diff.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
