Have a "switcher" to flip symlinks.  have gcc be a symlink to either egcc
or gcc, all ov which stay in their own hierarchy.

For instance, maybe have egcc and gcc.orig in /usr/bin, and gcc be a
symlink to one ov the two.  Its quick, dirty, but can anyone think of any
reason atall why it wouldnt work?

Maybe a script like this:

ln -s /usr/bin/$1 /usr/bin/gcc
