Hi All:

Is there "extract" I mean named as extract for Linux. I need it for Linux install. The automatic install script for XFree86 needs it and search on popular search engine results in nothing. Please let me know where to get it.

The web site: http://www.xfree86.org/4.7.0/install2.html talks about this utility.
