    customcc: Improve wrapper script efficiency and capabilities
    The wrapper script had some deficies, such as:
     * awk called every invocation
     * cc and gcc treated the same
     * c++ and g++ treated the same
     * evals for variables not used
     * every invocation of c++ or g++ called cc -dumpmachine
     * g++ hardcoded to dports include scheme
     * no support for "CC" or "gcov" (both defined by base compilers)
    The update addresses these by:
     * awk eliminated by pushing INCOPT definition to defaults/compilers.conf
     * cc -dumpmachine eliminated during creation of defaults/compilers.conf
       It was only used for dports gcc, so with the assumption that the dports
       compiler matches the uname information (a decent assumption), this
       was predefined, yet overridable by /etc/compilers.conf
     * cc is treated separately from gcc
     * CC and c++ are treated the same but separately from g++
     * by wrapper default, gcc and g++ refer to base gcc4.7, but the default
       compilers.conf sets them to the same as the specified dports gcc
     * Support for clang, clang++, clang-cpp, CC, and gcov was added
     * Support for base clang, clang++, and clang-cpp was added in
       anticipation of bringing clang into base.
     * variables are only evaluated if used.
     * supports the ability to have gcc, g++, clang, clang++ point to base
       compilers while cc, c++, CC point to custom compiler.  However, the
       custom compiler can also point to any combination of cc, gcc, c++, and
       g++ and that's controllable by compilers.conf.
    The /etc/defaults/compilers.conf file was augmented and support for
    clang35 from dports added.  man 5 compilers.conf was edited accordingly
    with placeholders for <version>_CLANG, <version>_CLANGCXX and
    <version>_CLANGCPP which aren't applicable until clang comes into base.
