Yes, it matters very much - anything that produces kernel modules should
ALWAYS be compiled with the same compiler as you compiled the kernel
with.  In this case, doing similar to what you do with the kernel (make
CC=/opt/gcc-2.95.3/bin/gcc) is enough for alsa, and most other packages
I've seen.  Most likely, this is the source of your problems.
