make cycle also gives you the latest compiler binary.

Since the original poster is using a trunk compiler, I assume he also wants the 
compiler updated, because the RTL compiled with the latest release is useless 
for the installed trunk compiler: It can only be used for compilation with the 
latest release compiler.
