gzip links

I have a little problem understanding why during dynamic gzip
we link gunzip -> gzip and then
we link uncompress -> gunzip which is -> gzip

As far as I understand the man page uncompress is gunzip, in
the sense, if I run gunzip on a shar file it works automatically.
And checking the Makefile it hardlinks uncompress -> gzip.

Or have I overlooked something? Thanks.
