oh sorry for that. if i comment out all the gcc44 stuff in my
make.conf and don't set CC/CXX/CPP in src.conf everything works fine.

any suggestions what i should put into my make.conf so that gcc44 only
gets picked when the current directory is not /usr/src/* or
/usr/obj/*? as you pointed out empty(.CURDIR:M/usr/src/*) and
empty(.CURDIR:M/usr/obj/*) aren't doing what i want.

actually i just modified this

.if !empty(.CURDIR:M/usr/ports/*) && exists(/usr/local/bin/gcc44)

which was suggested over @
