Which is one of the reasons it wasn't supplied. Also, the chown program
isn't typical for configure && make which is the test I use for adding to
the minimal set of binaries. Binaires that operate with a different set of
defaults based on name such as gzip and gunzip where gunzip on a UNIX
platform is a symlink to gzip; I realized with a script rather than a copy
to help keep the size of the tarball to a minimum.
