Use with, example : export CC=gcc-4.4 CXX=g++-4.4 && <other-command>
To boil this down, to use 4.3 to compile MAME on Debian Squeeze, per your suggestion I am using:
export CC=gcc-4.3 CXX=g++-4.3 && make
There are several bug reports that say 4.4 will not compile MAME 0.146 or 0.147. It is still compiling, but I have 4.1 installed as well just in case!
