You don't have to replace existing installations. You can simply build a new gromacs version and install it in a different folder than your existing installation. If you still want only the g_select tool for whatever reason you can usually chose to only build one tool (and its dependencies)  by issuing "make g_select" (or whatever tool of your choice). Installing it, however, is more problematic iirc, but you can in fact run it from the build directory.
