How to use Sun's CC with distutils?

I'm trying to install wxPython on a Solaris 8 machine. gcc fails to compile
the wxGTK configure script's test .cpp code, giving a strange math library link
error that no one here or in a couple newsgroups has been able to help me
with. I was told by the local experts to use CC for compiling C++ code,
and indeed that lets me build wxGTK fine (configure/make etc.).
Now I'm trying to install wxPython itself with the usual setup.py, and
it fails because gcc can't compile the .cpp files. I've tried
using a "build --compiler=CC" command, but I get an error:
error: don't know how to compile C/C++ code on platform 'posix' with 'CC' compiler
Anyone know how I should tell distutils to use CC?
