Where do the PsTools Go?

I downloaded the PsTools, but where do I put them?  They just come as a Zip file (not an msi or anything). 

I doubt that the build tasks are looking in the downloads folder for a folder called PsTools....

So where should I put them?  Should I check them into source control with the custom activities?

I typically manually deploy the pstools to c:\pstools folder on each build server.  However, with the dynamic nature of Team Build 2010, I think that is a good idea to check the files into source control and referece the SourceDirectory variable to pass in the to the Team Deploy activities.  Keep in mind if you are using a shared team project for your custom build activities path, you would need to include that in your workspace for the build.
