    I am using Linux RedHat v9.  I have downloaded the latest tzcode using:

          wget '*.tar.gz'

and ran the following commands:

       gzip -dc tgcode*.tar.gz | tar -xf -
       gzip -dc tgcode*.tar.gz | tar -xf -
       make TOPDIR=$HOME/tzdir install

but got the fatal response:

sed \
        -e 's|AWK=[^}]*|AWK=nawk|g' \
        -e 's|TZDIR=[^}]*|TZDIR=/root/tzdir/etc/zoneinfo|' \
        <tzselect.ksh >tzselect
chmod +x tzselect

I have no idea what to do about the script ''  Any 
suggestions.  Pls advise.  Thx.
