Why is there no configure "--program-suffix" parameter?

Dear all,

The --program-suffix parameter to GCC's configure script is very useful for maintaining multiple versions of the GCC compiler programs.

The LLVM/clang configure scripts do not provide such a parameter, or at least I could not find it.

Is there a reason for this?


I think the reason is simply that nobody has asked for or implemented this feature yet, rather than some conscious decision not to implement it. We would accept a patch that properly implements this feature.
