broken pipe on makewhatis.cron


Running FC4 on a bunch of Intel i686 boxes ...

We recently replaced an older i686 with a newer model. We installed FC4 on
same. /etc/cron.weekly/makewhatis.cron produces the msg
zcat: stdout: Broken pipe
65 times in its email report.

Does anybody have an explanation for this error msg, and how to fix same?
