I used to something similar, and set [LD_]LIBRARY_PATH and C_INCLUDE_PATH
according the version I wanted to use.  It all worked perfectly, until
libtool started interfering in various ways, e.g. hard-coding rpath fields
in executables and shared libraries.

Yet again, the proposed problem is more easily solved by other means.
