I've added a note to the download instructions for unix/linux uses to use
-a option when unzipping with InfoZip. Maybe that will cut down on

Yes, let's at least consider adding a boost_all.tar.gz. I'd like to build
it with identical content to boost_all.zip. How complex a shell script is
required? Can you point me to a Win32 version of a tar.gz encoder that is
known to produce files maximally useful by unix/linux decoders? I'd need
help from unix/linux users to test the resulting .tar.gz to make sure it
does what it is supposed to do.
