If so, should we keep -cc as an alias for -gcc, so as to simplify

The instructions can just say "set CC to the rumprun cross compiler you
built" or similar, I'd not bother enumerating the possibilities.
That adds a level of complication as opposed to just building
software for the host. If you run build-rr without setting CC, you
now have to know if your cc is gcc or clang. I assume most people
are like me: don't care what cc is as long as it produces runnable
Of course, you do need to know if you're on 32bit or 64bit, but for
that 64bit is a reasonable default. I doubt that anyone will be
building on non-x86 in a tutorial context.
