Bug#1883: "compress" missing?

Package: base? gzip?

I can't find the "compress" program on the system.  I know, gzip is better,
and can decompress *.Z files, but can't create *.Z files if I want to give
something compressed to someone who doesn't have gzip (many non-Linux
systems come with "compress" but not "gzip").

Source can be found for example in the FreeBSD distribution, and is under
the standard BSD copyright which shouldn't be a problem for us...
