This is true.

It would be Pythonic to honor the system conventions transparently. So
on Unix, environment variables should be considered; I don't know what
the conventions on other systems are (or whether the problem exists in
the first place). On Windows, you want a choice of using MSVC or gcc
or Borland C or ... This is already supported in a command line
switch, selecting the appropriate compiler class.
