5.10 Compilers and Preprocessors

All the tests for compilers (AC_PROG_CC, AC_PROG_CXX, AC_PROG_F77) define the output variable EXEEXT based on the output of the compiler, typically to the empty string if Unix and `.exe' if Win32 or OS/2.

They also define the output variable OBJEXT based on the output of the compiler, after `.c' files have been excluded, typically to `o' if Unix, `obj' if Win32.

If the compiler being used does not produce executables, the tests fail. If the executables can't be run, and cross-compilation is not enabled, they fail too. See section 11. Manual Configuration, for more on support for cross compiling.
