Done. Note that I did not simply remove the Sourceforge tarballs, but
simply completely removed the download directories of each autobuild
instance I was managing. This has two consequences:
 * A few invalid failures being reported, such as
   There should be no more than the number of instances I was taking of
   (4 on the Free Electrons build server, 4 on the gcc75 machine).

 * Probably a higher number of reports about failed downloads, since
   wiping out the download directory means that the next builds will
   re-download everything they need, which gives a higher probability
   of downloading tarballs that have disappeared, or trying to reach
   hosts that are down, etc.
