We stopped using CC and CFLAGS due to user complaints.
I think this is clearly the right thing for us to do.
However, I agree that having automake just generate an error here is
bad, since there's no clue that you have to define AS and ASFLAGS in
configure.in, and there's no macro for helping you do that.
One fix would be to introduce such a macro.
That would be easy (though we're trying to wean ourselves from new
macros that aren't in autoconf).
Another fix would be to define AS=$(CC) and ASFLAGS=$(CFLAGS) by
default (this is what the macro would do, too, but in this scenario
we'd do it in automake.in).
Akim, any preference from you?
