experimental gcc-2.95.3 and gcc-2.97 (20001224)

At http://master.debian.org/~doko/gcc you find 2.95.3 and 2.97
packages which can coexist. The gcc-snapshot packages are gone.

All binaries are installed versioned, the 2.95.3 binaries linked to
the unversioned names. To use the 2.97 versions, configure packages
with CC=gcc-2.97 CXX=g++-2.97 ./configure ...

Done. So each architecture has to decide, which one to use as the default.
