and gzip formats work flawlessly. 

Only did a simple recompile. (Only tested on hosted. Native system down for now
:-( )

 gzip'd, bzip'd or compress'd)

 Untarka extracts TAR (UNIX Tape ARchive) files without calling any
 external programs. It supports and autodetects multiple compression
 methods (.tar, .tar.Z, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .Z, .gz and .bz2). UNIX
 devices, sockets, hard links, symlinks, owners and permissions are
 ignored during extraction.

 compiles on Win32 under MinGW, Linux with gcc.
 To get gzip (zlib) support, pass to gcc: -DHAVE_ZLIB -lz
 To get bzip2 (bzlib2) support, pass to gcc: -DHAVE_BZ2LIB -lbz2
 To get compress (lz) support, relax, since it's the default.
 Compile memory-checking with checkergcc -g -ansi -pedantic -W -Wall
-Wstrict-prototypes -Wtraditional -Wnested-externs -Winline -Wpointer-arith
-Wbad-function-cast -Wcast-qual -Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations
