Just grabbed a copy of this script.  Much better than doing it by hand, but there are 
some problems with upper-case letters in filenames.   For example:

Missing Install Files:
   [curr] release/squid/squid-2.4-stable20010508.tar.gz
   [curr] release/xfree86/xfree86-base/xfree86-base-4.2.0-1.tar.bz2
   (... etc ...)

Not Removing files not in setup.ini
   (... etc ...)
