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
the moment.

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

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