C'mon John,

are you a system administrator for an S/390? :-)

If I understand you correctly, you are trying to tell us that Samba might
not be compatible with your OS because your OS doesn't have a certain
unzipping program installed by default?

You sound like a Windows user who fails to install WinZip...

www.gzip.org has the gzip source, in case there's no binaries available
for your OS. If you fail to build gzip, you will most likely have a hard
time building Samba...

AFAIR OS/390 allows you to host "other" operating systems that might work,
then you could e.g. install Debian and run Samba in that virtual
