Unless "cc" is hardwired into the Makefile, make
understands the environment variable CC (and a macro
definition of the same name) to specify the C compiler.
So you can either setenv (% = csh/tcsh) / export ($ =
% setenv CC gcc or $ CC=gcc ; export CC
% make ... $ make ...
do a one-shot environment setting,
% env CC=gcc make ...
$ CC=gcc make ...
or pass the correct value of the CC macro on the
%$ make CC=gcc ...
Just reach into these holes. I use a carrot.
