Setting CC= overrides MAKEFLAGS, that is why this needs to be removed.

I need CDBS to NOT set CC - that is the sum of it.

I will - because it only matters in cross-builds (because that is how I
have framed the patch) and the cross build tools explain why this is so
and what needs to be done. In the case of CDBS, if this patch is
implemented, nothing needs to be done.
