Sounds like you're using a RPM 3.0.5, and the SPEC files are slightly old.
The /usr/lib/rpm/brp-compress line gzips the man files.  If you install the
src rpm, and then edit the spec file, you can fix that.  Just add * to the
end of all of the lines in the %files section, change the version number
(change the release from 1 to 2), and then rpm -ba with the new spec file.
Sorry these are a bit rushed, many things to do, school has started.  :-)
