[This is more about debian ubuntu than emacs]

When looking for something in elisp on debian/ubuntu there is the nuisance that 
the files are gzipped.  So Ive to do things like

find /usr/share/emacs/23.4/lisp *.gz|xargs zgrep <something>

because zgrep unlike grep has no recursive flag

I believe that there is some dpkg/apt flag that says keep the files unzipped.

Anyone know of it?
