Dirty hacks must not exist :(

The one you referred to will vanish as soon as Automake use traces.
And we can leave some tricks to help people address their issues.  And
we _have_ to provide the interface they need to address their issues.

But the current problem is that there is a huge dependency between CC
and CPP, between CXX and CXXCPP etc.  It's becoming a pure nightmare
to synchronize all these people via AC_REQUIRE and so on.

So you share my opinion?
