Yes, automake should support these old compilers.  That is, until we
find that they don't exist any more.  That day could even be now.

Anyway, automake already supports this via the `compile' script.  Here
is a comment from the script:

    # Wrapper for compilers which do not understand `-c -o'.

This is the current cvs automake.

What do you mean by this?
My guess is that the current automake already does what you want.
