Bug#540133: Ignores user-supplied CXX=g++-4.4.

Package: libwebkit-1.0-2
Version: 1.1.12-1
Severity: minor

In debian/rules, the build-stamp target has a line

        cd build && \
        CFLAGS="$(CFLAGS)" \
        CXXFLAGS="$(CFLAGS)" \
        CC="gcc -Wl,--as-needed" \
        CXX="g++ -Wl,--as-needed" \

This line ignores user-supplied CC and CXX variables, and forces the
build to be done with g++.  This means for example one cannot say

    CC=gcc-4.4 CXX=g++-4.4 debuild -e CC -e CXX

To force building with g++-4.4 on a system where g++ is g++-4.3.
