You can compile once and use different config files for each runtime instance.
The config file contains ports and identities and locations of data directories.
For example:
/usr/local/bin/tor -f /usr/local/etc/tor/torrc1
/usr/local/bin/tor -f /usr/local/etc/tor/torrc2

I don't use the deb package but compile from source with the default options.
I have Xubuntu Intrepid.
