Our web site has tar files, not gzipped files.  The tar files *contain* 
gzipped files and PGP signature files of the gzipped files, but since 
the tar file combining them isn't particularly compressible, we don't 

So, which files are you trying to uncompress, the (already 
uncompressed) tar files downloaded from MIT, or the gzipped files 
contained within them (and not directly accessible for downloading as 
your message seems to imply)?
