how to specify the compiler when configure?

after I runned
apt-get install gcc
the default version of gcc is 4.0

then i typed
apt-get install gcc-3.4
to install gcc 3.4

Coz the gcc 4.0 can miscompile many code, I want to specify the compiler as gcc3.4
how can I do when compile?

Most programs will honor the CC environmental variable as pointing to the C Compiler. So, for example, if your gcc-3.4 is /usr/bin/gcc-3.4 (don't know if it is), do:
CC=/usr/bin/gcc-3.4 make
