Unable to build from Slackbuild in slackware 13

Hi Guys

I installed slackware 13 reacently

i was trying to build wvstreams and wvdial

when i give the ./wvdial.Slackbild it runs for quite some time and at the end while creating the package it gives me an error cannot find gzip compression utility in $PATH. and there is no tgz or txz package in /tmp folder

then i ran pkgtool and found that gzip isnt installed. the i installed it from the slackware dvd. but still i am getting the same error

Please help me at the earlies
