Maybe nevermind.  From #guix:

14:47 < nckx> 'The build driver is responsible for collecting input files, 
              resolving their dependencies, and producing a plan for 
              compiling your program.' — 
14:48 < nckx> Seemingly not synonymous.


14:51 < maximed> (OTOH, technically 'gcc' isn't the compiler but 'cc1' is ...)

and yet we call 'gcc' a compiler and seems a bit of an implementation detail
to me, so I dunno.
