GCG 8.1 clash with SRS

GCG 8.1 just arrived, and I have a few questions before I try to
install it...

I see from the System Support manual (pages 43-48) that GCG 8.1 includes
programs with names "srssection" "odd" "srscheck" "srsupdate" and
"srsbuild" which are exactly the same as the names SRS 4 uses.

Has anyone already installed GCG 8.1 at a site where SRS is already running?

Is there any experience with how to run the two together?

What version of SRS is included in GCG 8.1? Some of the documentation
(for example using "MaxIndexSizeKb" on page 45 of the "System Utilities"
manual) looks out of date.

What SDL files does it use? For example, does it include prosite ?
(the System Support manual example seems to only have Swissprot, PIR,
EMBL and GenBank but could just be a truncated list)

Also, the "LookUp" program (actually a front-end to SRS) has a list of
libraries in the program manual example. What happens to this at sites
with other databases, or without some of the listed databases? (for example,
we do not have genbank or "gb_tags")
