If I've understood the email correctly, Jerome is trying to install the
SCSCP additional package for GAP. As far as I can tell, SCSCP is not
packaged for Debian.

If I'm right, Jerome, you might note that the GAP SCSCP manual
(http://www.gap-system.org/Manuals/pkg/scscp/doc/chap2.html) has the
following to say:

As such, I suspect you want to untar it in /usr/share/gap/pkg/, which is
the "pkg subdirectory" for Debian's GAP installations. Note: I haven't
tried this.
