I installed 3.4.4 while building lfs and now just want to add
the additional languages.

That's exactly what I meant.
Installing a second C compiler under a different location.
Maybe even installing the same library (with the same name but
different internals) in different locations.

(I once did a gcc-upgrade on my old debian system the wrong
way and messed it up quiet a lot. I don't want to make this
mistake again.)

Can I build and install in /usr/local and then just move them
all to /usr? Or is the path hardcoded in the binaries?
