Try to write a batch-script. 
Here you can write after the execution of the program, a zip command to
zip all the files you need. 
You need to transfer the zip commandline-executale  (124 Kb) with

Well, script has several problems (in addition to the hassle of having
an additional level of scripting in the jobs). If the files generated
are very large and highly redundant, it is possible for the uncompressed
version to be prohibitively large, while the compressed file size would
be reasonable.

In addition, our installation stores all the files over NFS - you can
see that compressing them after the fact adds significant overhead which
would be eliminated by compressing on the fly.

BTW., is there some system of bug/feature tracking in place?
