At least the NetBSD cross-toolchain distinguishes between gcc and clang in the cc binary name, i.e. arch--netbsd-gcc or arch--netbsd-clang. Should we do the same? Obviously, it would always be -gcc for now, before some kind soul comes up with clang support, but at least we should be set later on.

If so, should we keep -cc as an alias for -gcc, so as to simplify instructions to not always have to contain "if you want to use gcc, set CC to -gcc, if you want to use clang, set CC to -clang"?
