Thanks, never knew it works in read-shell-command this way!

OTOH, next-history-element replaces the whole line even if one 
already typed `gcc ...' and does not allow to insert the file name 
with full path.

Speaking of buffer file names, probably there should also be a more 
direct way to copy the full path of the current file than C-x C-f M-n
