One POSSIBLE way to do this properly is to write a test that

1) Uses $CC, $CFLAGS, and related variables rather than hardcoding 'cc -O'.

2) Names any test files conftest.*, so configure cleans up automatically.

3) Doesn't execute any compiled programs.  See the __FAST_MATH__ test for
   an example.

However, I still think that we should not bother testing for this.
Considering that the condition first occurred a couple of months ago and
is already fixed, this isn't a big issue.  Think about what would happen
if we had to develop and maintain fixes for every buggy GCC compiler every
