I don't think we have anything in place to differentiate between gcc and clang.

The alternative is to add a configure check.  In, we need to try
determining if the compiler supports -mno-relax.  With gcc is not that 
as we'd presumably simply grep the output of "gcc --target-help".  But clang
doesn't seem to recognize --target-help.  How do you get the list of 
compiler options for clang ?

Else, if clang doesn't support printing out the command-line options it 
I guess we'll have to brute force and try linking something with -mno-relax and 
if that works ?  (this should be a pure C test, as I'm trying to make 
independent on the Objective-C runtime so it's easier to install custom
