Whoops - sorry for biting: I thought you posted to the follow-up 
bugreport #578303, where I already admitted that it was wrong to not 
support multiword CC / CXX.

(plus it is wrong of me to bite in any case)

The reason I - historically! - considered this not a bug in CDBS was 
that I could not think of a sane use for multiword CC / CXX.

Anyway, your patch has been applied now (slightly adjusted: I kept 
cdbs_expand_nondefaultvar as is and made a new convenience variable 
cdbs_set_nondefaultvar, as expansion and shell-style declaration are 
separate things.

Kind regards,

   - Jonas
