Can you elaborate on this part?

mod_gzip is not part of the Apache HTTP Server source distribution --
it's third-party.  I'm assuming you meant mod_deflate.

mod_deflate, OTOH, is part of Apache, but it's also a part of every
binary distribution I can find to check (Ubuntu, RedHat, Novell,
Solaris, z/OS, ...).  Which distribution builders do you think have
this requirement?
