I would backup the compiled ones, then put a script
into your shutdown sequence that replaces them with
the backups.  There's probably a better solution, but
this is how I'd do it.

Or...use dselect to mark the package "hold" - find the package using / and put it on hold with a =

then simulate the dist-upgrade just to be sure
apt-get -s dist-upgrade
