The build_ext command creates a new compiler instance, then call
on it, that is supposed to use the CC set in the environment when you
are under a unix-like system.

What you can do to find out what is going on is to set a pdb in
in the run command, to see how customize_compiler acts in your environment.

If you don't know how to use pdb, check http://docs.python.org/library/pdb.html
