I mean, `Makefile`s are not my favorite pastime... :)

I think what is important is to decide whether extra levels, for C and
Rust, should be kept compile-able/maintained or not (I also replied in
the `-O1` for C thread [1]).

Note that the Rust side can be compiled as `-O0` or `-O1` at the
moment, which is something we do not have for the C side; thus having
only the C == Rust option means we will not have a configuration with
those anymore.

For me it is less complex to not have them, and I have not heard more
opinions on this, either for or against (apart from that thread
suggesting `-O1` for the C side), so if nobody else chimes in, I will
remove them.
