I've checked this in, too, with some changes.  The version of this file
in CVS had my fix to convert slashes to backslashes so your patch didn't
cleanly apply.  I also allocated a static buffer and only calculated the
DOS pathname for gzip.exe once.  Finally, I changed all of the
formatting to GNU-style.

Thanks for this increased functionality.  I used this to update my own
installation.  It looks like I had somehow damaged my installation a
while ago.  Some files were missing, some package lists were missing.
Who knew?
