Good to see that it's overridable.

But then, you should ignore $CC, $CFLAGS, $CPPFLAGS, $LDFLAGS, when it
comes to the Perl extension module. And the Autoconf tests (for iconv
in particular, but also all the other tests of tp/Texinfo/XS/configure.ac)
should be run with $PERL_EXT_CC etc., not with $CC etc.
