Yes, but it's not nicer to make 'configure' slower than it already is.
As the slowness happens to every builder, whereas the "fail early"
problem happens only to the tiny minority of builders who configure
--with-modules but whose compilers don't support __attribute__
((cleanup)), it might be better to omit this unnecessary complication.
