Comment (by kencu):

 usually you set a configure and/or build env variable for NM, just like
 you would for CXX.

 for autotools you can set one of those ac_cv_xxxx env vars they use, which
 you find in the configure log after your failed build attempt.

 cmake and qmake are different; you pass it in as a configure arg or

 for some builds, you need to patch the Makefile or configure script.

 for your own machine "right now" you can symlink the newer one into the
 old one's location, but save the old one and undo it after your test and
 fix it properly or nobody will be able to reproduce your build.

 I think gimp uses autotools, so that is generally fairly directable.
