The purpose of AM_PROG_CC_C_O is to replace CC by the `compile'
script which emulates a compiler that supports `-c -o' when the
real CC does not.  As you pointed out, libtool already supplies such
emulation, so `compile' is never needed when compiling lo files.

We know it's needed only after processing the files.
