I am not the greatest expert on this, but if you download the source 
for (later than and compile it using cmake as 
described in the wiki AND change the target location from the default 
of /usr/local to e.g., your home directory then 1.3.5 and 1.3.3.x can 
coexist.  Now I am a Slackware user and am used to downloading source 
and then compiling.  Slack comes out of the box with all the 
compiling and linking tools, including cmake.  Don't know about
