Setting clang-cpp explicitly when building LLVM/Clang

Hi,

can you explain the meaning and setting of cpp?

I know I can explicitly set "-DCMAKE_C_COMPILER=..." and
"-DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=...".
I have not found a setting to do so for cpp.

$ cd build/ ; cmake ../llvm -LA | egrep -i cpp

Background is I had a typo in CMAKE_OPTS variable and CC and CXX
compilers were not set and played with Debian's way to set
alternatives for cc, c++ and cpp.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

P.S.: My current build-script.
