Now that I think about it more, I guess that is the correct behavior.
I guess I am just used to working in non-configure-based build systems
that separate out the compiler path from the flags/wrappers.

It would be nice to be able to specify it as --cc='a path/gcc'
--cc_wrapper=ccache --cflags=-m32, but I see that changing it would
break everything and that is not the ./configure style.
