Thanks. Would remove one test, but it's still only targeting gcc and we have 
no way to know which other compiler is 'cc'. Same problem for retrieving the 
VLC_COMPILER version string, which is also at different places (head/tail) and 
is shown by different switches (-v -V).

I'm thinking about retrieving the result from a compilation instead of 
trying/checking different command lines outputs.
#if defined(__GNUC__)
 printf("%s", __VERSION__)
#elif defined(__SUNPRO_C)
 printf("Sun Studio %s", __SUNPRO_C)
