Allow setting CC, CXX, and other variables to indicate compiler path

This PR implements changes to how users can indicate a particular path to
a particular compiler. It is sort of a follow-up to PR #17800 which added
CHPL_LLVM_PREFIX for selecting an LLVM installation.

This PR makes the following variables settable by users (as environment
variables or in a chplconfig):

  • for setting all the compilers (host and target) at once using
    relatively well known environment variable names:
    • CC, CXX
  • for setting host and target compilers separately:
  • for indicating which system LLVM installation should be used / the
    path to it by providing the path to the llvm-config command:

Additionally it does some clean-ups for LLVM Makefiles.

For printchplenv, the new variables are in the compiler or runtime
categories but aren't printed by default (so printchplenv --all will
print them). This PR adjusts printchplenv.py to include an idea that
some variables shouldn't be in --path output since it doesn't make
sense to store the path to CC say in the compiler/runtime build path.

PR #17931 contains the documentation changes to go along with these changes.

  • [x] full local testing

Future Work:

  • adding testing for setting CHPL_HOST_CC / CC / CHPL_LLVM_CONFIG etc.
