Description of problem:
If you attempt to save a nethack game and the recover the saved game, the
game will print version mismatch and create a new game.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start nethack
2.Save a game with the capital S command
3.start nethack again
4.nethack will complain of version mismatch of the old save file, and start
a new game.

Actual Results:  Save file ignored, new game started.

Expected Results:  Old game should be restored.

Additional info:

I edited the patch file, and changed the use of bzip2 to use gzip, and
removed the special options passed to the compresser, rebuilt nethack and
it worked correctly.
