Try export CC='gcc' or CC='/path/to/gcc' then clean and re-run configure

Or clean and run configure CC='/path/to/gcc'

Or even both.

Watch out for ar as well, I've had that do the same thing on Solaris 8. 

I usually add CC='/opt/sfw/bin/gcc' and AR='/opt/sfw/bin/gcc' to all my
configure's and make's
