The name of the variable is purely arbitrary. It means different things
to different modules. I don't really understand how this Autoconf
feature can be useful. Perhaps if the modules configuration is very
vanilla, things like CC don't change so you get some benefit. Maybe
there is something I don't understand. 


It looks to me that this feature made the assumptions that there would
be no name clashing. Thanks for looking into this, I need to be
convinced it is safe to use.
