gzip pkg. install error

I accidentally used swaret to remove gzip when i wanted to remove grip. now when i do a instalpkgto get it back i get.
bash-2.05b# installpkg gzip-1.3.3-i386-2.tgz
Cannot install gzip-1.3.3-i386-2.tgz: package is corrupt (failed 
'gzip -l grip-3.2.0-i486-1yah.tgz')
It look like the pkgtool is trying to use gzip to check the pkg and its not there. i know what i did was very stupid , can i get gzip back and save my installation?
