  When building the various software packages use the following configuration 
--prefix like this:


When you do the "make install" you will get the software installed in a 
directory structure like this (where VARIANT has values of RISC-V, NVMe, etc.):


Each directories listed above will have the following directories (from one of 
my layouts):


Under normal installations pacakages are generally installed or "rooted" in 
/usr, /usr/local or /opt and the application installed in places such as:


As a result --prefix will allow for packages to installed in different 
locations as well.

  Keep in mind you would need to use absolute PATH settings or vary your PATH 
settings to get the variant you want.

  I use this technique for having multiple versions of JAVA, ANT, MAVEN, and 
other software on my systems as well.
