Don't do that. Install to another prefix, preferably *not* /usr/local.

Steps to take:

- Unpack tarball
- Create a build directory
- Change to the build-directory and call configure from the source
directory, passing it something like --prefix=/opt/gcc295.
- make bootstrap (this *has* to be called)
- make install

Note that even if you succeed in compiling gcc 2.95.3, you won't be able to
compile C++ programs and libraries that need more then libstdc++, i.e.
mostly KDE programs.

I'd really advise you to not take that step but either wait until the
authors fix their code or fix the code yourself.
