Not quite: the "CPP" in CPPFLAGS does not stand for "C++" but rather
for "C preprocessor".  In the built-in rules, CPPFLAGS is part of the
commands for both C and C++.  The variable that is passed to the C++
compiler but not the C compiler is CXXFLAGS.

So, if you want to pass a -D option to the C and C++ compiler, add it
