please calm down. seems that you have never installed gcc from ports.

gcc 2.95 from ports is installed as gcc295/g++295
and correctly gets its bits from /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/xxx,
gcc 3.0x from ports is named gcc30/g++30 and so on.
There is no PATH issue. Switching between compilers is as easy as
setting correct CC/CXX environment/Makefile variables.

argument about disk space sounds a bit funny these days.
