I totally agree, and that will be easy.
It is possible to have several versions of GCC installed, by compiling them
with a different suffix.
For example, in Cygwin 1.5, the default compiler named "gcc" is the version
3.4.4, but there is an alternative version named "gcc-4" which is the
version 4.3.2. One can use the alternative version when building packages
simply by using "configure CC=gcc-4".
It is possible to see how a specific gcc version has been configured with
the following command:
$ gcc --verbose
On Cygwin, here is what I get:
$ gcc-4 --verbose
... --program-suffix=-4 ...
So in order to make a GCC 4.x named gcc-4, you just have to configure it
with with the additional option --program-suffix=-4
