Hmm.  Wouldn't it be sufficient to have a symlink at /usr/local/ 
texlive/2007/doc/macros/latex named "contrib" pointing to /usr/local/ 
texlive/2007/texmf-dist/doc/latex/?  This command sequence should do:
mkdir -p /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-doc/doc/macros/latex
cd /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-doc/doc/macros/latex
ln -s ../../../texmf-dist/doc/latex/ contrib
Not quite sure I got those paths right; ".../texmf-doc/texmf-dist/ 
doc/..." looks a bit weird, anyway.  Any corrections welcome.

That would minimize the dangers of data loss because no data would be  
changed at all.
CAVE: that's just a untested proposal -- I'd try it without  
hesitation but I had to install TL2007 before (sorry about that ;-).
