I re- tarred the grass tarball in the /opt/grass5sources directory.  The
tar -xvf command did not uncompress a directory called grass5.0beta10 in
the /opt/grass5sources directory. It did make the following directories:
txt. There is a file called grass5 in the directory but it is only a
file of an unkown type. What am I doing wrong? Is there a problem with
the gzip file I downloaded?
