Incidentally, ftp is probably your best choice for other reasons. When
downloading Majordomo with a web browser -- netscape, lynx; take your
pick -- I always ended up with a truncated file.
compress would complain about corrupt file headers. gzip, normally a
useful program, came up with the helpful error, "This file is encrypted.
Get a newer version of gzip."
ftp'ing the file from GreatCircle solved all my problems.
