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.
