Posted by Daniel Ignat: 
It seems to me that there is an error in ch6, in the gzip compiling 
it says to change the hardwired location of the gzip binary to /bin, 
with a 'sed' command. 
I think that the part: %"BINDIR"% in the sed command should be 
just %"BINDIR% (without the second " quotes) 
because the original file gzexe.in has this text: "BINDIR:$PATH" which 
should be changed to "/bin:$PATH" as I suppose.. so, the second quotes 
will never match that pattern.
