Hmm, don't like that much.  It seems to be local sysadmin policy to cut
down on redundant things in /usr/local/bin and we have a whole network
of these (Solaris 9 *) boxes.

Why not just recompile, I hear you ask?  Well, that would mean the
Solaris 7 boxes on the same network (which don't have /usr/bin/gzip)
would stop working!

* Solaris 9 does come with a copy of Lynx in the Sun Freeware collection,
  but it's 2.8.3 and doesn't contain support for https URLs.  It's also
  misconfigured given that xli isn't in the Sun Freeware collection.
