You can probably build all in /usr/local and _leave_ it in /usr/local

I ran a system with gcc-2.95-3 in /usr and gcc-3.3.1 in /usr/local. I
pointed the three variables ($CC $CXX $CPP) at the /usr/local version
and everything worked fine. If I wanted to use gcc-2.95, I could just
unset those and it would find /usr first in the path

The binaries seem to know where their libraries are - otherwise my
compiles would have barfed over compiling  with the wrong gcc libs. So I
would not move compiled stuff to a different tree. 

I also upgraded the cpu without reinstalling (k6/2 -->Athlon). So I
build on an i686 system but my compiler knew to use the libs at

In short, I've made nearly every conceivable attempt to bugger it, but
they just seem to work :-)).
