  Perhaps the nice thing to would be supply an auxiliary (optional) package
full of alternative-name helper shell scripts like these.  (Apropos of
nothing, I'll point out that SUS may demand cc, c89 and/or c99, but says
nothing about cc-3, c89-3, c99-4, or any other such combination.... so it
might be enough to just ship scripts and let them point to whatever the
default selected by alternatives is?)
