Does the build actually fail? This is some sort of compiler version
test in autoconf AC_PROG_CC. I think it's just trying to give you
information about the compiler being used. It tries --version, then
-v, then -V to try to get the version number. From what I can tell,
though, it doesn't bomb configure, and the only messages should be in
What version of autoconf are you using?
