Trouble with MSVC `cl -c -o ...'

could someone help me with the following problem please?

I have some which uses feature of "renaming objects". It works fine with gcc etal. but fails with MSVC `cl' because of ``-c -o'' doesn't work. Here is a simple example:

AM_CPPFLAGS        = ...

bin_PROGRAMS       = myprog-vX myprog-vY

myprog_vX_SOURCES  = myprog.c

myprog_vY_SOURCES  = myprog.c

Then Makefile tries `cl ... -c -o myprog_vX-myprog.obj myprog.c' which generates 'myprog.obj' instead of 'myprog_vX-myprog.obj' and fails later when tries to link 'myprog_vX-myprog.obj' which cannot be found.

I used both AC_PROG_CC_C_O and AM_PROG_CC_C_O but it didn't help.

When I need to build libraries and using Libtool it's OK because Libtool does something like `cl ... -c myprog.c' and `mv -f myprog.obj ...'

Can I resolve this problems simply unless I have to write my own "rules"?

Thanks for any advice,
