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.
