Silly question: Are you sure there was not a file `a.out' too?

I can confirm the obvious fact that autoconf is broken:

   16:31:17 address@hidden:~/lily
   $ touch a.out
   16:31:23 address@hidden:~/lily
   $ chmod -w a.out
   16:31:35 address@hidden:~/lily
   $ clily
   checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
   checking Package... LILYPOND
   checking builddir... /home/janneke/lily
   checking for C compiler default output... configure: error: C compiler
   cannot create executables
   See `config.log' for more details.
