Right, I had noticed this.

We often fall between
"let's fix this too while we are here"
vs
"do not do multiple things in a single patch"


If we replace gcc -> $(CC),
we also need to touch line 51 for consistency:

gcc -c -x c - >/dev/null && rm ./-.o && echo yes)

..., which is not our main interest now.

So, I leave it to a follow-up patch
if somebody has interest in it.
