Make's configuration attempts to determine whether your compiler
recognizes the -o option; if so it will be used.  If not, not.

You can see what make's internal builtin database looks like by running
this command (this if for UNIX; presumably something similar could be
done on other platforms--if nothing else use an empty makefile instead
of /dev/null):

    make -pf/dev/null
