Surprisingly, it works out pretty well by default. I use configure
--enable-shared --enable-threads. The stuff gets installed under
/usr/local. After that, /usr/local/bin/gcc is egcs which knows where to
find all its stuff, including libstdc++. /usr/bin/gcc is the old gcc,
which seems to be unaffected by egcs installation.
Normally you can just use different PATH settings (with or without
/usr/local/bin) to control which compiler is to be used during package
(or kernel, or whatever else) build.
By the way, the installation instructions have also been released:

Good. I did not touch Fortran at all.
