It is not a hack and it is known reason that you need to honor CC.

How did you set? The graphics/png doesn't honor it when you add CC=foobar  
in make.conf or graphics/png/Makefile.

I don't tweak CC, so it's why I never have seen it until LoN_Kamikaze  
report it. Not many people do that, but it's good to honor CC for icc,  
choice versions of gcc and other compilers.

I already have gave you a solution. If you don't like it then it's your  
job to figure another solution as you are maintaining for this port.
