Question download newest files on ftp

I need to d-load most of the gnu ftp stuff, but I only want the newest version of each of the programs, is there a script/program anyone knows of that will log into the ftp, download the newest file of every name? like if one directory holds gcc-3.2 gcc-3.1 g++-3.2 gcc-3.1 it would download both the 3.2 files but not the lesser 3.1 files? abnd I need it to be directory recursive so I can get all the utils.

I also am hoping there is a way to limit the bandwidth used
