It depends on how and where you install them. If they install in exactly 
the same place (they should) they would just overwrite the existing 
binaries and that's it. 

For a different problem I'm just about done recompiling today's alsa cvs, 
maybe I could make the resulting binary rpms available somehow so you can 
test them in your computer...
