Thank you Daniel for your great help. Paragon script really doesn't
respect CC=3.4 so I did another dirty hack (pointing temporarily gcc
-> gcc-3.4 and g++ -> g++-3.4) and now it works - the module can be
inserted correctly. At last.

I've checked the makefile and maybe this is the part where gcc version
is computed out:

check_gcc = $(shell if $(CC) $(1) -S -o /dev/null -xc /dev/null >
/dev/null 2>&1; then echo "$(1)"; else echo "$(2)"; fi ;)
gcc_major := $(shell echo __GNUC__ | $(CC) -E -xc - | tail -n 1)
gcc_minor := $(shell echo __GNUC_MINOR__ | $(CC) -E -xc - | tail -n 1)
