I'd reccomend doing what I did with pgcc. I install each gcc,g++ ...
binary with a p appened to the beggining. i.e. pgcc, pg++.
What I'd like to do is a way to do update-alternatives so that the user
could chose what would be their default gcc easily. This would help a lot
cause many makefiles are "evil" and it's difficult to get the same CC all
the way through.
