I think the new compilers can only create elf binaries.. though the file
that is written out is called a.out it's actually an elf binary!!

[kingsly@utopia umsrf]$ file binary/a.out 
binary/a.out: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1,
dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped
