Defining aliases? Or use prepend a terminal specific directory to the path
where you define your own symlinks.
mvn -> /usr/bin/mvn-2.2
jar -> /usr/lib/jvm/sun-jdk-1.6/bin/jar
java -> /usr/lib/jvm/sun-jdk-1.6/bin/java
javac -> /usr/lib/jvm/sun-jdk-1.6/bin/javac
javah -> /usr/lib/jvm/sun-jdk-1.6/bin/javah
For Ant you might create your own slotted ebuilds (maybe as ant-bin to
separate from the one provided with Gentoo) and use symlinks again.
I am quite sure you can create a little helper script that sets up such
links for the current terminal when you provide the version for those
packages as argument.
