I'm afraid I don't understand. You mean, we could write the
results of some specific tests in advance? What kind of test
results could that be? What would be the advantage? Even with the
same compiler, results vary.

  (For instance, sometimes we have ARM TCC with localtime_r,
  sometimes without - which actually is a bad example, because
  sometimes we have and can link localtime_r, but must not use
  it, which cannot be detected by configure of course).
