I've seen various recommendations:
1) CC=xxxx (or CXX)
kernel builds, at least with some add-ons, apparently require some
other variable get set too. I can't remember it offhand.
2) edit the makefiles by hand (ugh)
3) use dpkg-divert to set the default cc tools. Note gcc does not use
/etc/alternatives, and this is deliberate.
