Luser: "No, I can't"

Stupid people although in fairness to the cc one, it was probably some poor
harried admin who'd been using Unices with C compilers for years, and
couldn't understand why he was getting an error when he typed cc even if
the meaning of the English words was perfectly clear. I knew it was
happening with the transition from SunOS to Solaris, but I still couldn't
believe it :-)
