I have lots of source tarballs in the distfiles directory and I was wondering about ways to clean the duplicates up...I mean the taraballs of the older version of a package...for e.g I have gcc-4.3.0 and gcc-4.3.1, I would like to remove the gcc-4.3.0; so anyways to weed such old packages out?

Using grep I guess?

Moved from Documentation, Tips & Tricks to Duplicate Threads, refer to "What's the suggested distfile cleaning script".
