Hi Martin,

I tried this and set the permissions to 775 of everything (on Mandrake
Linux 9.1) 
However when I unzip or unjar it, it has different permissions. When I
install it,
Mozilla gives different permissions to it. I can't reproduce this.

But I can't be sure they have zlib installed. Option 1 would therefore
be better.

That's a pretty big file (600 lines). Could you tell me where?
