Hi everybody,

When installing 'gzip', the executable is being moved to /bin and linked
to /bin/gunzip. Since some programs need the programs compress and
uncompress and the compress-file-format is being handled by gzip as well
it might be a good idea to link gzip to /bin/compress and /bin/uncompress
as well.

I came across this, when installing 'xpdf'. 'xpdf' eventually complained
about missing compress when trying to read some PDF-documents, so I made
the obove-mentioned links and everything works fine now.
