The symlinks on ftp.gnu.org are needed for the automated extraction of 
ChangeLog and NEWS files for
http://www.gnu.org/server/new-software.html
.
(Since contrib/gennews wasn't updated (item 1 of releasing.html), the 
gcc/NEWS file extracted there for 3.1 isn't particularly useful, as it 
doesn't include the 3.1 news.)
