gcc upgrade to 4.2

hi!

i've done upgrading my gcc version from 3.4.4 to 4.2 from ports (make && make install)

but when querying gcc --version, it still shows as follows:
Quote:
[user@college ~]$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.4.4 [FreeBSD] 20050518
Copyright (C) 2004 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

someone told me that after upgrade i need to use gcc42 command

Quote:
[user@college ~]$ gcc42 --version
gcc42 (GCC) 4.2.0 20060422 (experimental)
Copyright (C) 2006 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

so meaning now I have 2 gcc version installed (3.4.4 and 4.2.0) ?
how do i uninstall the older version?

If you still have the 3.4.4 source and build environment you can do a make uninstall. If not, you will have to locate the directories and files and manually delete.
