No, that is the norm, not the exception: CC, CXX, OBJC, BUILDCC, OBJDUMP,
OBJCOPY, RANLIB, STRIP, NM, WINDRES, unix2dos, PROTOC, DESKTOP_FILE_VALIDATE,
LUAC, LEX, BISON, KDE4_CONFIG are all using the simple form.
And most AC_PATH_PROG calls are cargo-culted/copy-pasted without consideration
whether it was actually needed.

No. It is not using the same environment that is prone to errors.
configure even checks to prevent the most obvious errors.
