there is (use compiler='franken-gcc' in your weave call), but it's NOT a good 
idea to try to build extension modules (what weave is doing for you under the 
hood) with a different compiler than python itself was built, unless the two 
compilers are known to be extremely compatible.  gcc3 and gcc4 (what I assume 
ubuntu built python with) won't play well together: the C++ ABI changed with gcc4.
