Same for man pages.  Back when I kept a private set of build scripts
for half a zillion packages, I had an m4 macro that expanded to a
shell command that would compress these resources, after 'make
install' had finished.  It was a bit fragile with TEXINFOS though,
since the info files didn't all have the same filename extension.  (I
recall having some fun with info itself, as it would install it's
documentation named  My naive filename glob broke on that.)

It would have been nice if automake had been able to generate rules
that would install the compressed documentation.
