scripts/mkcompile_h uses $(CC) only for getting the version string.

I suspected there was a specific reason why the additional flags were
needed, and dug the commit history. This code dates back to at least
2002 [1], but I could not get any more clue.

Just get rid of it.

I would be alarmed to find it changing the version string with flags. ;)
