It is just as easy to compile it yourself.

1) Get the tar file from an ftp site.
2) unpack it with tar xf gzip-1.2.4.tar (or whatever the filename is)
3) cd gzip-1.2.4
4) ./configure
5) make
6) make install

You will now have IRIX 6.2 binaries of gzip, gunzip, zcat, zdiff,
zgrep, zmore, znew, zforce, gzexe and zcmp

A lot better than just one gzip binary, and all in 6 steps!
