What I do (with Apache) is pre-compress the files and have Apache just  
send the ".gzip" file when it's there.

   AddEncoding gzip .gzip

   RewriteCond %{HTTP:Accept-Encoding} gzip
   RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/%{REQUEST_FILENAME}.gzip -f
   RewriteRule ^(.*)$ $1.gzip [L]

Compressing static files at request time seems slightly insane ...
