wmii ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot)

The default gcc compiler now requires linked libraries to appear after the source file
gcc example.cpp -lsomelibrary
wmii build files have the shared libraries located before the source files, and thus can not be easily built with the default configuration.
To build wmii I updated the to use gcc-4.4 for the compiler
CC = gcc-4.4 -c
LD = gcc-4.4
This allowed the project to compiled with the following command:
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -us -uc -b
