I'm trying to compile SWFTools on Linux by using an alternative compiler to gcc and I got the following message:

checking build system type... x86_64-pc-none
checking host system type... mips-unknown-elf
checking for mips-unknown-elf-gcc... mips-unknown-elf-gcc
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking for suffix of executables... 
checking whether we are cross compiling... yes
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether mips-unknown-elf-gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for mips-unknown-elf-gcc option to accept ISO C89... unsupported
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... yes
checking whether mips-unknown-elf-g++ accepts -g... yes
checking whether gcc supports lazy variable declaration... no
* Your gcc is too old to compile this!
* The last version compileable by this compiler is 
* swftools 0.7.0, which you can download from 
* http://www.swftools.org/swftools-0.7.0.tar.gz 
* .
* Newer versions require at least gcc 3.0.0 

I've read in this post that any alternative to gcc results in the error above (for clang on Mac OS X Lion):

"Of course the error message is wrong; swftools is just under the mistaken impression that every compiler one might use to compile it is gcc. In this case, we're using clang; clang's version number happens to be lower than gcc's, though it is just as (or more) capable than gcc."


How that validation can be bypassed?

Many thanks,
