mirror a site with wget that only response with gzip

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'm trying to mirror a site but the server only responses with gzip pages so wget won't recurse. I've searched around and there are some references to a patch to add gzip support to wget however they seem to be out of date. Is there anyway to do this? If not I was considering reverse proxying it through nginx. (HowTos)
