Right.  That's another part of what I meant in the other mail when I
wrote "Autoconf ... is only suited for one compiler per language".
Again, the correct way around this is to use one configure script per
C compiler.  Then, with overriding CC as appropriate, the corresponding
tests provided by Autoconf should work as expected.

Hope that helps.
