 No, the original line is just fine. The link we use in the book,
 ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/bash/ contains a tarball in the .gz format. Also, at
 this point in the book, there is no need to specify a 'z' or 'j' in the
 tar flags. Tar >= 1.15 has the ability to automatically discover a
 tarball's compression type, and at this point in the book we know you are
 using that version of tar.

 Marking as wontfix, but thanks for your effort.
