Could you show exactly what you did, rather than describe it in words?
I ask because I'm wondering whether you as developer of a package put


in, or maybe instead
  : ${CC=/path/to/compiler}

or you as user of a package did
  ./configure CC=/path/to/compiler

and what semantics didn't fit with your expectations; i.e., what
happened, and would you have expected to happen instead?  Because
the above things all work just fine for me.  Please also state the
Autoconf version used.  Thanks.

Not sure yet.  Is this a package for general use, or just for you, on
your system only?  Is adherence to GNU Coding Standards an aim for it?
