I didn’t, it was CPP before, it is still CPP after.

Cf. the commit which fixes wx silent rules.



lib/wx/c_src/Makefile.in:114:CPP_O              = $(V_CPP) -c $(CXX_FLAGS) $(WX_CXX_FLAGS)  $(COMMON_CFLAGS)

That’s the only place V_CPP is used.

Silent rules by default will also make omitted rules stand up more and be fixed faster.
