Ok, updated to a working version that works on Linux and on Windows, with 
MSVC. It can even compress on Windows, if you have gzip.exe in $PATH, which 
you will if you're in a Git Bash shell.

It doesn't use Git Bash's sh.exe because nmake kept giving me a meaningless 
error that I didn't have time to purse. So exercise left to the reader, if 
wished.
