WinZip [Re: Egcs 1.1 having trouble with 'typename'?]

At the risk of introducing a new flame-war, could I point out one possible 
to leave the install as .tar.gz, and not use WinZip, etc.

gnutar and gzip are free and come with the gnu-win32 installation, WinZip isn't 
and doesn't (come with gnu-win32).

IMHO, its a bad idea to rely on the user having extra software, even if widely 
After all, not everyone can get frequent access to the 'net.

Sorry if this offends anyone.
