So at the moment, that's.. (from ftp.gnu.org)

-rw-r--r--    1 0        0     12321026   Mar  8 19:50  binutils-2.12.tar.gz

-rw-r--r--    1 0        0     26885025   May 15 06:28  gcc-3.1.tar.gz

But we can't keep swapping the package order each time a new version is
released so I reckon (as it doesn't seem to be too important), that we
stick with what we do now; i.e. the binutils version being the later
installed version remains.

Does this sound reasonable? (it just seems a lot of faff to do it any
other way).  Maybe we could add a brief note about conflicting files
somewhere as well?
