What *should* happen is we should separate kernel and userspace, let
userspace use whatever CC the user wants, and allow the kernel CC to be
overriden but tested (see solaris-cc and aix-cc in src/cf) but I haven't
had time to write this yet and no contribution has shown up, either. If
I'm going to spend time on it I'm going to do it right.
