Ok, I understand; does it mean that different options are chosen per
compiler; or does configure bail out?

'configure' does add some compiler options based on your platform (e.g., '-O2') but it also respects the options you choose. It bails out only if nothing seems to work.

Can't we say: you need a c99 conformant compiler, otherwise
compile will fail; and for those that use not fully conformant compiler,
let them be on their own?

We do say something like that already, in the sense that we require common C99 features like declaration-after-statement. However, we don't insist on 100% C99 conformance since (a) we don't need it and (b) it's pretty rare.
