I ran this script manually and reenabled the generation of snapshots off
the GCC 4.2 branch.  I assume we just missed the latter because we hadn't
documented this step in our release documentation.

Mark, what do you think of the patch below?  It adds this piece of 
documentation and removes the step to remove RC sources from our server 
since we are now treating these pretty similar to regular snapshots which 
we do not remove either and we have users (including the FreeBSD Ports 
Collection who refer to these RC tarballs).

(Also, it's less work for the release manager. ;-)
