No, the check doesn't _work_.  It just _passes_ by shere good luck.

If $CC were not able to handle -c -o correctly, and created
conftest.$ac_objext instead of conftest2.$ac_objext, ./configure
would still think that $CC handles -c -o correctly.

I committed the patch attached to this mail.

Have a nice day,
