Because it is not a GNU official release and it problems some of the
packages i am trying to compile. Successfull compilation with other
versions is reported.

This was what i was thinking but will it link my programs to correct
libraries of the newer version ?
If all the compilation can be done correctly just by changing my PATH then

Please advise me about this,
Thanks for ur help,
