      Then extract the resulting *.tgz* archive into the place where
      you want Zope to be installed.  Zope has no "build" directory,
      the "install" directory *is* the build directory.  In the below
      example, we extract the *.tgz* directly into our home directory.
      This is recommended for purposes of this example::

        chrism at saints:~$ gunzip -c Zope-2.5.1-src.tgz | tar xvf -

         on OpenBSD, the following works

         # tar zxvf Zope-2.5.1-src.tgz

        % Anonymous User - June 13, 2004 11:26 pm:
         gunzip -c Zope-2.5.1-src.tgz | tar xvf - 

         This is the ugliest code snippet I have ever seen.

         For the record, tar zxvf works as well on Linux as well (GNU tar 1.13.92)
