it's nothing more than "./configure with different --prefix=/path and
let /etc/ld.so.conf contain a folder that would in fact be a symlink
to /path/lib of the myth installation you want to run, and do a similar
thing for $PATH".

Example: one myth ./configure-d to "/stable", the other one to
"/unstable". In "/etc/ld.so.conf" added path to "/whatever/lib" and in
$PATH added entry "/whatever/bin". And the "/whatever" is a symlink to
either "/stable" or "/unstable". And run "ldconfig" whenever you change
the symlink. That's all.
