How will this work?  What I mean is, which $CC options will you use to
produce the "default" executable instead of a named executable?  I'm
curious, because I don't know if I can make cl.exe create an executable
without giving it the -o<progname> option...

: So, any problems with running _AC_COMPILER_EXEEXT first?

None that I see, except that you will probably also have object files
in the current directory which you will have to avoid thinking is the
executable, but since the current mechanism is to use knowledge about
what's most common and let those findings supersede any other findings,
it should not be a problem.
