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
