Subject: can't gzip xwindow tar file

I downloaded a copy of X11R6.122094.tgz from cray-ymp (twice), and have
not been able to zinstall or tar it from inside the netBSD.
I get the same error at the same place (error message is slightly
different, but occurs at same place for I presume same reason.)
I type from unix cli:
"tar xzvpf X11R6.122094.tgz"
The file starts to decompress and spews out:
tar: skipping to next file header...
gzip: Stdin: invalid
compressed data -- format violated
tar child returned status1
What to do?
