for such cases i have a global makefile.include in my projects, which is 
included by all makefiles in subdirectories

ofcourse you could do some checks for variables in the above mentioned include 
script, and then call make like

MYCC="gcc" make

check "MYCC", use CC="gcc" if not defined etc pp

(both probably isnt an option if the makefiles must work with other tools than 
gnu make, i dont know =P)
