Here's a snapshot of my mxe/pkg directory:

  -rw-r--r--  1 enoch enoch  21455321 Nov 13  2012 binutils-2.23.1.tar.bz2
  -rw-r--r--  1 enoch enoch  21440347 Mar 30  2013 binutils-2.23.2.tar.bz2
  -rw-r--r--  1 enoch enoch  22716802 Dec  4 20:51 binutils-2.24.tar.bz2

binutils-2.23* very likely can safely be removed.

Some script is required that obtains the latest MXE required tarball
names {a}, the stored tarballs on mxe/pkg {b), and then remove {b}-{a}.

We shall need the help of MXE Makefile Gurus to create the set {a} :-)

Thanks, Enoch.
