What you should do: 
  install libc5-altdev and altgcc. libc5-altdev does _not_ conflict with
  libc6. Then you'll need to do something with
  your PATH so that the altgcc will be used by default instead of the
  libc6 gcc. (Probably read /usr/doc/altgcc/* to find out what).

One problem though: if you are compiling libg++ stuff, you'll also have
to install libg++272-altdev, and I didn't make that package.
(I'm the libg++ maintainer). 

If there is enough demand for a libg++272-altdev package, I'll release one,
