By POSIX compatible do include command line switches.

Watcom C requires an equals sign, ie. -fo=foo.o, -fo foo.o won't work.
Also, command line arguments are case-insensitive so there is no way to 
distinguish between -o and -O.

Would it be possible to get round these restrictions with a CONFIG.SITE 
file or would a compiler specific M4 file be required?

Is Autoconf designed for including compiler specific options? ie does 
anyone use it with anything other than gcc?
