Hi Konstantin!

It is always nice to have more buildsystems supported:-)

Would a interface like this suffice for your needs:

Utils::FileName cCompilerCommand() const;
Utils::FileName cxxCompilerCommand() const;


Those could return e.g. "cl" (MSVC) or "gcc" (auto-detected gcc) or
"/home/code/installed/custom-gcc/bin/gcc" (custom installed gcc). You might need to examine the
PATH as set up by addToEnvironment(...) to find the real executable locations.
