What version of gcc do you have? (gcc --version)
Here's one way. Find these lines in the top-level Makefile:
HOSTCC = gcc
HOSTCXX = g++
Change them to match your compiler version. For example,
HOSTCC = gcc-3.3
HOSTCXX = g++-3.3
I think 'update-alternatives' can be used to change the gcc link to
something other than gcc-4.0. As it's been a very long day at the IDE, the
details escape me and I don't seem to have any other version installed at

Sorry, I don't know anything about closed-source drivers.

The Debian 2.6.14 source configures and compiles cleanly with gcc 4.0.
