My solution is to have two different environments, and a few symlinks to 
select them.

I keep the stock installation from rpm's where they belong (/usr/lib/.. 

I keep experimental things in my home directory: ~/Applications/lazarus, 
~/Applications/fpc etc. This makes them writable, and I can play all 
tricks I want.

  .lazarus in my home directory, is just a symlink to the appropriate 
directory: either .lazarus_9_30 or .lazarus_9_31
Then I have two different starter scripts, which adjust the symlink, and 
then invoke either stock startlazarus, or my copy's startlazarus. Each 
.lazarus_xx carries configuration information, and where fpc is located, 
so I can change things one side without endangering them on the other side.
