Of course configure.cxx has an appropriate default value. You don't need to set it unless you want to override that default.
Of course setting configure.compiler will set all the related variables to their correct values, including configure.cxx.
In this case I see no need for you to override the defaults of either of the above, unless you know for a fact that this software does not compile with Mac OS X's default compilers.
