Oops. I meant "in the same location". You have to remove all traces
of the older gcc first. Search your harddisk for anything named
*2.7.2* or containing the string 2.7.2 if you need to.

All I did was remove 2.7.2 and untar the binary distribution
of 2.7.2.1. I did not configure anything.

gcc 2.7.2.1 works great with libc 5.4.7, ld.so 1.7.14, kernel 2.0.25,
and binutils 2.7.0.3 (I think - "as --version" reports that)

Everything but the kernel was a binary distribution.
It all works great.
