gzip installs:

-rwxr-xr-x   3 root     root        60673 Jan 12 05:07 gunzip
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root         3845 Jan 12 05:07 gzexe
-rwxr-xr-x   3 root     root        60673 Jan 12 05:07 gzip
-rwxr-xr-x   3 root     root        60673 Jan 12 05:07 zcat
-rwxr-xr-x   2 root     root         2003 Jan 12 05:07 zcmp
-rwxr-xr-x   2 root     root         2003 Jan 12 05:07 zdiff
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root         1007 Jan 12 05:07 zforce
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root         1336 Jan 12 05:07 zgrep
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root         1071 Jan 12 05:07 zmore
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root         3505 Jan 12 05:07 znew


bzip2:

-rw-r--r--   1 root     root        63426 Jan 12 05:14 libbz2.a

-rw-r--r--   1 root     root         7800 Jan 12 05:14 bzlib.h

-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root       417620 Jan 12 05:14 bunzip2
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root       417620 Jan 12 05:14 bzcat
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root       417620 Jan 12 05:14 bzip2
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root       343147 Jan 12 05:14 bzip2recover


if none of these files is needed, why should anybody install bzip2 
and gzip in chapter 5?
gerard, you may have thought of sth when deciding so, please let us
know. (actually it doesn't hurt to install them, just i'm curios.;))
