Make and "cc" executable

Hi Guix!

With gcc-toolchain install, I still have no "cc" executable.
With many other distributions, "cc" is a symlink to either gcc and

Programs like "make" default to "cc" as the value of CC, the C compiler
environment variable.
Therefore a simple "make" fails on Guix when the Makefile does not
specify some fallback for CC.

What are the recommendations?  Should all Makefiles specify a fallback
for CC?  Or is it up to the user to either export a properly set CC
environment variable from their .profile or similar?
