If you're just doing local testing (where running QEMU
from the command line is sufficient) you can also just
build the various configs in different build directories[*]
and run them directly from the build directory without
installing them at all.

[*] that is,
 mkdir -p build/foo && cd build/foo && ../../configure [options]
will configure for an out-of-tree build, which you then
build with 'make -C build/foo'. This is usually a better
idea than running configure and building directly in the
root of the QEMU source tree anyway, but it's particularly
handy if you're building more than one configuration.
