It would be nice to allow recompilation with a single key stroke even
if the previous compilation hangs. With the following patch the user
can skip

 `A ... process is running; kill it?'

if he set `compilation-ask-about-kill' to nil.

Probably, enough time has passed since 2006 :-) The following patch is
adapted for the current version:
