The configure script determines the CC variable for your system (among
other variables) and then copies to Makefile, replacing
tokens like @CC@ with the appropriate values.  The right way to set a
variable like CC is on the ./configure command line:

./configure CC=/usr/local/bin/gcc

If you insist on modifying, you need to delete the @ sign
because it is a marker for the configure script to replace, not part of
the makefile syntax.  This explains your "make install" error.

It looks like something, perhaps your modification to,
triggered the rule that updates Makefile.  If this happens, do what the
message says and run "make" again.  If the same thing keeps happening,
you can delete the rule from Makefile.  The rule looks like this:

Makefile: config.status
        @echo "Makefile updated -- rerun your make command."
        @exit 1

Good luck.
