C++: Globally set compilerArgs

I tried to globally set compilerArgs in tasks.withType(CppCompile) but it was just ignored. How can I compile both of foo.cpp and bar.cpp with -pthread ?

Gradle 2.6 with JDK 1.8.0_45 on CentOS 6.6

binaries.withType(NativeBinarySpec) {
    if (toolChain in Gcc) {
        cppCompiler.args '-pthread'
        linker.args '-lpthread'

@tonyabbott Works like a charm! But how did you find out you could use cppCompiler with NativeBinarySpec? I only found linker in the document.

Think I must have found it in an example somewhere, but as I understand it the binary is also decorated with GccPlatformToolChain because it is being compiled with the Gcc toolchain, hence the cppCompiler property.
