Yep, i did try it, below is the end of my /etc/kernel-kpkg.conf file :
# This is the debian revision number (defaulted to 1.0 in debian.rules)
# You may leave it commented out if you use the wrapper script, or
# if you create just one kernel-image package per linux kernel revision
# debian := 1.0
ROOT_CMD := fakeroot
do_clean := NO
PATCH_THE_KERNEL := YES
MAKEFLAGS := "CC=gcc-3.2"
But still, gcc (which is gcc-3.3) was used (and failed to build kernel
2.4.20 on ppc).
