It is horrifying.  I spent quite some time over the weekend searching for
a better solution, without success.  The issue is quite simple: when
loading and compiling are nested in some unknown order, how do you
determine which of them is the "innermost" activity?

But, then again, maybe I could bind the "compilation flags" to nil around
each invocation of `load' inside the CC Mode compilation system.  Yes,
I'll give that a try.

You need to rebuild CC Mode, but not necessarily the Emacs core.  This
should do the job:

    emacs -Q -batch -f batch-byte-compile path/to/lisp/progmodes/cc-*.el

, or you could just do a `make' from the main Emacs directory, possibly
deleting cc-*.elc first, just to make sure.

But feel free to wait until I've tried the alternative, better, approach
above.  I'll get back to you later.
