Take a look at contrib/scripts/live_ast in the source tree of Asterisk.
It's intended to run a "private" copy of Asterisk. There's also support
there for using "private" copies of libpri and DAHDI if you actually
need that.

Alternatively, build every combination in its own chroot.

In both cases, DAHDI kernel modules you actually load are system-global.
