You're in the riscpkg group so I'm not sure why you can't do it yourself.

Anyway, instead of symlinking packages individually (latest/gcc.zip ->
../gcc-4.1.2-release2/gcc.zip etc) I've symlinked the folder latest entirely
to gcc-4.7.4-release1.

Can anyone remember why the packages had individual symlinks rather than on
a per-directory basis?  I wonder if there's some reason related to
downloading from RISC OS that I've missed?

(I left the existing folder in place as 'latest-4.1.2' for now)

Hopefully you're set up to do that, feel free to go ahead.
