Would you prefer Configure use a default of -O instead?

Of course setting CC won't change it, because that just sets the compiler.
Setting OPTIM to "blank" reduces to a default, so of course that
wouldn't work.

Why? I toyed with a '-s' flag to it; By default TestLib would
display all error messages and adding -s to it would make it
silent. I still have that code if it's voted as a +1
