I'm not sure if your perception is correct. Your system uses gcc 4.6.0, which you installed during LFS. BLFS gives you the choice to install gcc 4.5.1 and/or gcc 3.3.6, but they are installed in another location and if they are installed gcc 4.6.0 is still your default compiler.
To use a different gcc version then the default use something like this: export CC=/opt/gcc-4.5.1/bin
Hope this helps.
