Thank you.
It was simple and pretty close to what I wanted.

So far I observed only one undesirable effect: system-wide upgrade of binutils from version 2.35.2 to 2.38.90.
On this particular experimental installation it is acceptable, but I still wonder how can I install newer tools in a way that does not affect "system" at all.
