That is a little drastic under the circumstances
g++ is nothing but a link anyway (on Mandrake 8.2 to g++-2.96)
Simply rename the link /usr/bin/g++ and make a new one that points to yours

If you are using Mandrake 8.2 (I don't know if the other distros do this)
/usr/bin/g++ is a link to /etc/alternatives/g++
Which is then a link to /usr/bin/g++2.96

Change this link (rename old & make new)
And neither the starting link or the compiler is touched

Using Linux Mandrake 8.2
