You just need to give each PBI a slightly different program name. Try 
just appending the version number to it like this: GCC45, GCC46..... and 
that should let you install multiple PBIs for the same compiler. Of 
course. This might cause some issues with the default path links if the 
main binaries are all named exactly the same thing too, but as long as 
you specify the pbi directory when running the compiler 
(/usr/pbi/<pbiname>-<arch>/.sbin/<binary>) you can make sure to run 
whichever one you want.
