It was indeed a horrible kludge...but is unnecessary in our case. Two
native gcc's can indeed coexist. Both gcc and egcc are configured as
$(arch)-linux, but under /usr/lib/gcc-lib/$(arch)-linux, the gcc files
are under 126.96.36.199, and the egcs files are under egcs-2.90.00. They
don't get in each other's way.
