Hi Oscar, 

this is pretty easy. I took advice from here: 


In the menuconfig browse to "Processor Type and Features", there You 
can check the "Core 2/newer Xeon" option. 
To the best of my knowledge the default gcc version should do. On my 
Jessie box I happened to find gcc 4.8.2. But I have a hard time, thinking 
that the gcc version shipped with Wheezy wasn't able to compile it just 
as good. 

Best regards
