That is a reasonable workaround for the case where upstream refuses to
do the compression at build time.

Much better would be to get upstream to remove the compressed versions
from their source tarballs and VCS repository (if present) and
generate them at "build time" while also providing compressed versions
in a separate file for users of those.
