The dot just before "tar" should actually be a vertical bar symbol |
so the command should be:
gunzip -c ImageMagick.tar.gz | tar xvf -

Looking at the page source, that "dot" is actually the "& bull" entity,
which may look like a vertical bar on some renderers (or may have
looked like a vertical bar once upon a time). The whole
site should be checked for use of this entity and it should be replaced
with something more reliable.
