i just found out that src.conf should only contain WITHOUT_* and maybe
DEBUG_FLAGS = -g. what i did was to remove all CC, CXX and CPP
definitions from make.conf and defined them in src.conf. this however
broke buildworld. :(

simply add


to src.conf and bamm! 'buildworld' should fail somewhere in lib/csu
(that's ony amd64). so putting compiler related stuff into src.conf
isn't such a great idea.
