Dear Bob,

Many thanks for your responses.

Well, here is what AC_PROG_CC outputs when running
$ ./configure CC=cl
checking for i686-pc-windows-gcc... cl
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking for C compiler default output file name... conftest.exe
checking for suffix of executables... .exe
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of object files... obj
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... no
checking whether cl accepts -g... yes
checking for cl option to accept ISO C89... none needed
checking how to run the C preprocessor... cl -E

>From that, I inferred that cl is supported. Am I wrong here?

Also, in autoconf's documentaiotn, in section 5.10.3 (C compiler
characteristics) where the AC_PROG_CC macro is documented, one finds the
following example:

          AC_PROG_CC([gcc cl cc])

>From that, too, I inderred it was okay to use cl.exe in conjunction with
an autoconf script. Am I wrong here?

Thanks a lot in advance for any help in clarifying this!
