Notabug. :) I guess this is how it's supposed to be by Makefile design.
It's not a "hardcode". It's an option. You can always change it, just run:
  make CC=anothercc
(Note: not `CC=anothercc make`) It's a (known?) makefile feature. Those
variables in the beginning of a Makefile are often there just for that.
