What does it say in the configure output for:

  checking for gcc...


  checking compiler version...

Also, what is the contents of your mozconfig file (in the 
mozilla-release directory) - mine contains:

. $topsrcdir/browser/config/mozconfig
ac_add_options --enable-update-channel=release --enable-update-packaging 
--enable-official-branding --enable-stdcxx-compat --disable-gio
mk_add_options MOZ_MAKE_FLAGS="-j4"
mk_add_options BUILD_OFFICIAL=1
mk_add_options MOZILLA_OFFICIAL=1

P.S. The gcc44 install will not interfere with the default gcc install
