Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.6, Package name: gzip-1.6, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

GZIP (GNU zip) is a popular data compression program written by Jean-Loup
Gailly <gzip@gnu.org> for the GNU project.

This program was developed as a replacement for compress because of the UNISYS
and IBM patents covering the LZW algorithm used by compress. These patents
made it impossible for us to use compress, and we needed a replacement. The
superior compression ratio of GZIP is just a bonus.

Log message:
Force the use of the gnulib version of wctype.h, bundled with gzip, when
building on AIX. This is a workaround for an issue where though the wctype.h
included on system was found, wctype_t & wctrans_t were deemed unsuitable,
causing the build to fail due to previous declaration with confliciting types.
