Subject: pkgsrc/devel/boehm-gc: why is *.cc compiled using cc, not g++?

When bmaking test in pkgsrc/devel/boehm-gc I end up with the following:

-DATOMIC_UNCOLLECTABLE=1  -I. -I. -I./include    -O2 -Xcpluscomm -c

why is cc used to compile tests/ (this fails on my platform),
and not g++? Is it because of the following lines in Makefile:

test_cpp.o:     $(srcdir)/tests/
        $(COMPILE) -c $(srcdir)/tests/

when I change COMPILE into CXXCOMPILE things work. Is this simply a bug
in boehm-gc's the Makefile?
