Thanks.  Over the last few days I did some more kicking of Jenkins and it
now generates PackMan package lists for each GCC build, so just add


to your PackMan sources and it'll install the nightly build for you. 
Currently this only applies to gcc-4.7-native, but in principle can apply to
other packages too.  Nightlies won't update properly because we aren't
bumping the package version, but that could be fixed.

Today's build is number 32, where I bumped the release number to 2.  This
works on my Raspberry Pi with no problems (looks like my RPCEmu hostfs image
is broken somehow, which is why I was a bit suspicious of the previous

I announced that on the ROOL VFP thread.  Unless there are any major
showstoppers I hope to push build 32 as the official release in a few days.
