This is on Fedora Core 3.

RPM automatically gzips man pages after the %install
stage. So any generated file lists MUST substitute .gz
filenames for non-.gz filenames for man pages, or the
file check stage that happens just before writing the
RPM out, will fail.

Attached patch is a 'quick hack' using sed, to solve
this issue. Improvements welcome.
