Your suggestion is fine in this sense. I can observe that the following command 
works as expected here.

my_build_dir=/tmp/fixdep-check-20161018-1 && mkdir "${my_build_dir}" && 
my_cc=/usr/bin/gcc-6 && make O="${my_build_dir}" HOSTCC="${my_cc}" allmodconfig 
&& make -j6 O="${my_build_dir}" HOSTCC="${my_cc}" drivers/md/

The command example above is an approximation for the configuration approach
which I would really want instead.

How do you think about to clarify further which implementation detail could 
the shown software build difficulty?

Can it be that the passing of the adjusted parameter "HOSTCFLAGS" has got a 
influence (with unwanted side effects) in this use case?
