I can only guess that the hardwired CC and CFLAGS values can cause
problems.
It is probably much sane on Windows to use the compiler that the user
set up for the build.

I'm not sure if users of, say, OS X, have the same problems, so I
would hesitate to apply these changes to all helpers.

If you mis-spell a variable name, nothing is build.  If you misspell
a binary name, that binary may get compiled using a default rule;
that is why I would generally prefer variables.
Moreover, if the cardinality of the set ever increases, the
indirection may get helpful.
No big deal.

Again, I agree with Pat that it is nicer this way, but no big
deal.
