1 Apologies for posting here, but gentoos bugzilla has gone from being
2 incredibly irritating to completely broken.
3
4 anyway, Ive got two bugs to report, both to do with gzip_x86, the x86
5 optimised version of gzip.
6
7 firstly, gzip and gzip_x86 should fill a slot, because they both do the same
8 thing.
9
10 secondly, gzip_x86 installes to /usr/bin/gzip, whereas gzip installs to
11 /bin/gzip. gzip_x86 is wrong. this also causes problems with man.
