Subject: cc problem with new buildlink framework

The compiler handling with the new buildlink framework causes some
problems on IRIX 5.3, where /usr/bin/cc is a symbolic link:

lrwxr-xr-x    1 root     sys           17 Dec 29 15:32 /usr/bin/cc ->

When compiling (as an example archivers/lha) one gets:

===> Building for lha-114.9nb1
make all in src...
-DUSESTRCASECMP -DSYSV_SYSTEM_DIR   -I/usr/local/pkg/include -c lharc.c
cc ERROR:  cc is not installed in
*** Error code 1

When explicitely setting on the command line CC=/usr/lib/cc things work
(it does not work when setting CC in /etc/mk.conf though. Why?). I
wonder why the buildlink framework cannot handle a cc which is a
symbolic link.
