Ok.  Well, are implicit make rules ever used in the makefiles?  If so,
we would have to make them explicit in order to use a different
compiler variable.  I tried to touch the least number of things
possible with my patch.

If you wish, I can take a crack at eliminating the use of 'override'
and using a different set of make variables for the instrumented calls
to commands.
