bug#30597: Bug: error messages from gunzip

I'm using gunzip 1.5 on Amazon Linux 2017.03.

When running gunzip /nonexistent/*gz, the error message from gunzip is very 
misleading: gzip:  /nonexistent/*gz.gz: No such file or directory

It's misleadng in two ways:

1. it refers to gzip, when I was running gunzip
2. it refers to a file specification that I did not provide, by naively 
appending .gz to the file spec

Doubtless you have bigger fish to fry.
