Do you have to gunzip it first?  I just did an upgrade to cygwin, and
it appears I have other issues as well.  From both DOS and bash, I

     which gunzip.exe

and I get


I type mount, and I get the following:

bash-2.05b$ mount
h:\usr\pkg\cygwin\usr\X11R6\lib\X11\fonts on /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts type system (binmode)
h:\usr\pkg\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (textmode)
h:\usr\pkg\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (textmode)
h:\usr\pkg\cygwin on / type system (textmode)
c: on /cygdrive/c type user (textmode,noumount)

I change directories to h:\usr\pkg\cygwin\bin, and there is no
gunzip.exe.  That's curious.  I now see that gunzip.exe is there but
the directory listing hid it, and it was 19 bytes in size and was
marked a system file.
