I suspect either your copy of the tarball is bad and/or
your copy of gunzip is bad.  You can verify that the
tarball copy you have is correct by generating an
MD5 hash of the file and comparing this to the .md5
file found on the FTP site.

% cat openldap-release/openldap-1.2.11.md5 
MD5 (openldap-1.2.11.tgz) = ac469c0fe66ece3893e96182f14b7886

% md5 openldap-stable.tgz
MD5 (openldap-stable.tgz) = ac469c0fe66ece3893e96182f14b7886

(openldap-stable is currently 1.2.11)

You can also use gunzip to verify the tarball.
% gunzip -vt openldap-stable.tgz
openldap-stable.tgz:     OK
