No it wouldn't, since the 'gcc' command is executed by 'make' and not by 
your shell (which has the alias informatin for gcc).

$ alias gcc
alias gcc='gcc -m64'
$ make
...
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/ft/yxa/build/src/event_handler'
gcc -Wall   -c -o 	  
  syslog_c-port.o ../../../trunk/src/event_handler/syslog_c-port.c
...
