Description

The majority of man pages in NCP (all versions) are gzipped which means they can only be read with gnu man and not man from OS/Net or Illumos. Illumos could add support for these.

I've attached a patch that adds support for this. It's a bit of a hack but it's probably no worse than the code that's already in man :)
