I fixed it but never broke it. The setting in 
bootstrap/mods/mk/ has been there since revision 1.1 from 
March 2004.

By the way, in mk/, we have:

     ALL_ENV+=         CXXCPP=${CPP:Q}

Isn't that calling for bugs, too? In my opinion this line should be:

     CXXCPP?=          ${CXX} -E
     ALL_ENV+=         CXXCPP=${CXXCPP:Q}

This looks more sane to me. I think it just worked up to now because no 
package depends on CPP being a real C preprocessor and CXXCPP being a 
real C++ preprocessor.
