Anonymous ftp conversion of xxx => xxx.gz
Ah, Slackware 3.0 . . . .
What was forgotten in the 3.0 distribution was the fact that it was ELF. This
means that you need to have the ELF loader, ld-linux*, in the ~ftp/lib
You need the loader. Even if the program is 'statically' linked the loader is
used. If you forget the loader then programs such as "gzip" or "compress" or
even "ls" will refuse to work from the anonymous ftp access.
