This comes to mind first:
- Does one depend on the other (which could determine your install order for the above mentioned two),
- Are the dependencies for each packet still satisfied or do they need upgrading as well,
- Check if the same files are installed (assuming you will follow the BLFS book),
- If the same are used I would not uninstall the old package, installing the new version will overwrite the old ones.
Don't do this from within X, use the command line and do remember to re-boot (complete logout->login might be enough) after each install.
Hope this helps.
