No one spoke up at all, and I have removed 2.32 and 2.40.

I received on offlist comment concurring with my analysis that 2.48 from
pgksrc (with 4.08) will not interwork with out-of-date 2.48 on peers
because the old 2.48 will have been built with earlier ocaml.

I'll let a full week pass from my original note and then if no
objections or concerns, rm 2.48 as well.

Please do speak up if you use pkgsrc 2.48, or if you need more time to
see if it's usable, etc.
