I've downloaded -current from anoncvs few months ago, when the version was 
labeled 1.6U. I'm still using this version.

But, these days, I've updated my source tree and the -current from these days 
are not labeled 1.6U anymore. It got a new label, like 1.6ZC or something 
like that (take a look at the letters after the number).

But, even with the new source tree, when I build the toolchain, I get I'm 
using the older version of source tree, 1.6U.

Look at it (using up-to-date source tree):
