I just built qemu from source, which defaults to installing itself in
/usr/local/bin, which is before /usr/bin in the search $PATH.

You can even install the nightly snapshot du jour:

  git clone git://qemu.org/qemu
  cd qemu
  ./configure --disable-werror
  make -j 3
  sudo make install

And it should all "just work" without touching the existing qemu (which
you can still access via /usr/bin/qemu).

Not an option?

GNU/Linux isn't: Linux=GPLv2, GNU=GPLv3+, they can't share code.
Either it's "mere aggregation", or a license violation.  Pick one.
