To make it easier to read and write where it is used.

It was not clear to me that ac_cc_win32 was the main point, I
understood that setting CC was the main point.
So if that's the case, then I have further comments to make. Don't
use the ac_cc name space at all when interacting with the user. Use
some upper case thing such as CC_MWIN32. I have no idea about it, but
I guess the C++ compiler will also want something similar?
