Using gzip, e.g.:

    gzip -d gcc-3.0.2-sol8-sparc-local.gz

You can usually pipe this into something, e.g. tar, but I don't know if
you can do this with Sun's package system.

However, you probably have already got an uncompressed copy (as Robert
suggests) - when you tried unzipping the file, it found a Java
(runtime?) .jar file embedded in the package (which is really a .tar
file) and uncompressed that instead. If your package was gzip
compressed, I think unzip would have failed.
