During toolchain detection, if the found compiler (CC or CXX) is a 
symbolic link, we resolve it and point to the resolved binary. This was 
introduced to be able to debug systems with a broken setup, but it 
breaks use cases were a CC wrapper is used.

A better solution is to just print the path of the resolved symlink and 
keep the original value intact.
