That's actually a good point.  But since we've always used AC_PROG_CC,
and there haven't been any reports of this not working, I think we
should just keep using the same macro.

After looking into this some more, I think this fix is perfectly safe
for any Autoconf version.  Autoconf 2.64 catches cases of incorrect
macro nesting, so expanding AC_PROG_CC before stepmake is initialized
should be all that's needed.

I'll push.
