Is there a way to use an old version of GCC as an option?

The gcc which ships with Fedora 24 is 6.1.1 at present. I have some software that requires gcc 4.8 or better, but not gcc 5 and not gcc 6. Is there a way to support two versions of gcc on a Fedora 24 box without actually having to build gcc from source? It appears that the build is highly non-trivial.
