Subject: Installing gcc in a local directory

Only LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/user/gcc-4.2.0/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH?
What about include files? For example, if I want to compile a tipycal hello world program in C, what stdio.h use the compiler, the new 4.2.0 or the old 4.1.2? If I want to compile a program with gcc-4.1.2 instead of 4.2.0, what about the new LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/user/gcc-4.2.0/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH order?
Need add LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/user/gcc-4.2.0/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH order if I compile, for example, gcc/g77 too?
You can check by
gcc -v
gcc -print-search-dirs
to see that the compiler is correctly using its own paths for its include files.
