I believe it's a .tgz or .tar.gz file, right? Just un-compress and untar it:

tar -zxvf netcat_file_name.tgz

cd into the newly created netcat directory and take a look at the README and/or INSTALL files. Follow the directions on compiling it. If you need some guidlines on how to do that, take a look at the HOWTO written by the boss-man himself, Jeremy:
