Thanks.

Adapting jka-compr-insert-file-contents for detecting .gz files and
using zlib-decompress-region (if available) instead of calling gzip
would add ugliness to an already hairy function.

I'll add --without-compress-install to the MSYS2 build instead. Having
gzipped sources and info files on MS Windows are not all that convenient
anyway.
