Just a suggestion: What's about installing gcc 3.x and all related files
in another directory, e.g. /opt/gcc3, using the standard executable
names? You can install both compilers in parallel, and select the 
compiler by changing $PATH. Much easier and less error-prone than 
editing a lot of Makefiles to replace 'gcc' by 'gcc-3.0', 'g++' by 
'g++-3.0', etc.
