Subject: [PATCH v2] configure: work around compilers that merely warn for unknown options

some compilers (such as clang) accept unknown options without error,
but then print warnings on each invocation, cluttering the build
output and burying meaningful warnings. this patch makes configure's
tryflag and tryldflag functions use additional options to turn the
unknown-option warnings into errors, if available, but only at check
time. these options are not output in config.mak to avoid the risk of
spurious build breakage; if they work, they will have already done
their job at configure time.
