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.
