The fact of the matter remains that you are testing "compiling with gcc and
linking with g++", not the very similar "compiling and linking with gcc" or
"compiling and linking with g++" or "compling with g++ and linking with gcc".

They all may detect different bugs and have different behavior across platforms
and environments. It is another variable to take into consideration, is all
that I was trying to get across. Doing both linking+compiling with one of them
is fewer variables than mixing things up.
