Look at config.log to see what configure was attempting to do before it failed.

That will give you a hint.

For example I don't think your --wigh-gcc option is valid.

Generally you add your new gcc bin path to the front of the PATH env var.

Alternatively you specify it directly in CC e.g. export
CC=/path/to/gcc; export CXX=/path/to/g++

Hopefully that helps.
