./configure --prefix=/usr/local

This puts all the stuff in /usr/local/...  The only thing that conficts 
at this point is the name `gcc'.  I avoid that problem my renaming all of 
the new gcc, et al binaries in /usr/local/bin to have an `n' in from of 
them...ngcc, ng++, etc.  Since it uses it's own heirarchly for cpp, cc1, 
etc. these names don't conflict.
