Yes, gcc-3.3 (and the matching g77-3.3) and local builds of everything

Also, upon reflection its probably better to change CPPFLAGS to 
'-I/usr/local/include -D__DEBUGGING__' rather than CFLAGS since 
CPPFLAGS is included in the .c.d rule and CFLAGS is not. I must have 
already had the .d files sitting around.
