What you are doing should work, once you fix the typo; this is what I
see in a resulting configure file after pasting in a corrected version
of your attempt:

if test "$GCC" = yes; then :
  if test "`$CC -v 2>&1 | grep -c 'clang_version'`" != "0"; then :

Yeah, the formatting is not as pretty as what you started with, but when
was generated configure ever formatted nicely?

You will also notice that you had a logic change - your original code
left CLANG_CC explicitly set to the empty string in all but the
double-success case, but your AS_IF attempt leaves CLANG_CC undefined
rather than explicitly empty on the success/failure path.

Libvirt uses:

AC_CACHE_CHECK([whether this build is done by a static analysis tool],
  [lv_cv_static_analysis], [
    if test -n "${CCC_ANALYZER_ANALYSIS+set}" || \
