Comment (by bdubbs@…):

 Looking at the script itself, there are comments about how much space is
 saved by compressing man pages.  It comes out to about 20 Mb.  Is this
 significant on today's systems where disk space costs about 1 USD (or
 less) per Gb?

 Perhaps we should consider removing the compressdoc section completely.
