I haven't tried changing it because I did not know whether ~gccadmin/scripts
was used anywhere other than the cron table entry. There's no reason why
the cron table can't call the scripts out of maintainer-scripts directly.
The scripts subdir can probably be removed entirely if we know nothing
else is using it. I don't know anything about OLD-RCS-unused, but its
name suggests it can go away. :-)
