That makes sense, from a make-ish point of view.  When the makefiles  
pass the explicit command line settings to each other everywhere, then  
command-line variable settings act like a stronger sort of environment  

I guess I like the command-line trick better, even though I don't  
fully trust the makefiles to share the command line settings all the  
way down.

BTW, the trick based on ALT_COMPILER_PATH depends on the code in these
