I switched it to do the "detect if it's supported" thing that I
introduced yesterday, so we'll work out for HOSTCC and CC if it's
supported and pass down if so.

Some people have crazy old compilers, and I'll happily rant about that,
but only with suitable beer supply, which, prior to my afternoon run, I
should not avail myself of :)
