could you clarify the problem a bit? I just tried, I can download the file 
with wget or a web browser, the utility "file" says it is

gmp-6.2.1.tar.lz: lzip compressed data, version: 1

and both "tar xf" and "lzip -d" happily handle it.

Do you mean that you end up with a text file whose content is 'No lzip or 
lunzip available'? Is it possible your web browser tried to be helpful and 
uncompress it for you but failed?
