You mean that there is a `c++' executable on your PATH that comes before than
the one on /usr/bin, and that it was ignored? If the answer is yes, it is a bug
on CMake. Please report it on http://www.cmake.org

CMake uses the CXX environment variable. But if you want to specify a compiler
on the CMake command line invocation, you need to use CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER. This
makes some sense, because `make -DCXX=foo` sets the CXX *variable*, but there
is no CXX variable within CMake, it has CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER, which default value
is taken from the CXX environment variable, if defined. You can argue that this
is a bit verbose, but it is consistent with CMake's naming conventions.

One more thing to keep in mind is that CMake != make. If there is a confusing
thing here is CMake's name itself :-).
