To be honest, I'm a little bit confused. If you install from the rpms 
the binaries will have different names : gcc, gcc34, etc. So why the 
hassle to differentiate them?

Unless, instead, you only set environment variables CC=gcc or CC=gcc34. 
But sounds silly.

I think this make more sense if you have different MPI compilers, like, 
one mpicc (gcc34), other mpicc(gcc41), etc. Or different BLAS libraries, 
like libblas or libgoto etc.
