Huh, that's weird. I'll fix it when I get home.

No one really followed up on this so I thought I might..

Brosch, if you at still interested in this, and Deidra (thanks for your work over the years), this is generally caused by working inside pathnames with spaces. I.e. "/home/user/Software Builds/compiz/".

Most of the SlackBuilds on SBo also fail to run/gzip fails to open when unable to parse the space in the path. (For those of of you unsure if this is the case, do a "pwd" command to see where you 'are'.)

Hope this helps..
