Sigh, I even thought about this but incorrectly "remembered" that we
had a glob for all the man pages in the .spec file (must have been
thinking of the glob to get them whether they are gzipped or not).

Oops, I missed that change.

Why 3?  The previous patched .spec file was for 0.9.8, this is 0.9.9.
Not that it matters really.

Does this comment cause problems?  I'd rather clearly document the
purpose (and any side-effects) of such workarounds so they get removed
when they are no longer required, rather than being left in place
because nobody is sure exactly why they are done in the first place.
