Is there a debian way to make the system use 3.2, or do i just
rename gcc-3.2 to gcc and apt-remove the old gcc?

See /usr/share/doc/gcc-3.2/README.Debian.gz.

"update-alternatives --display gcc" says there's no alternatives.

Deliberately so, yes.

I haven't configured alternatives before. I get an error:
russell@main#: update-alternatives --config cc

There is only 1 program which provides cc
(/usr/bin/gcc). Nothing to configure.

  /etc/alternatives/cc -> /usr/bin/gcc -> gcc-2.95

In /usr/bin, there is gcc-2.95, gcc-3.0, and gcc-3.2. What is
the proper way to make gcc-3.2 the system default?
