Hello everyone.

I noted that Gzip package does not contain one more important line.
The .tar.Z packages can't be unpacked with /bin/tar -xf option (in
tar-1.15.1 and newer) and therefore I have a recommendation to add the
following line to the Gzip package in LFS (HLFS and ALFS too).

ln -s /bin/gzip compress

Thanks for your attention!
Mild regards,
