See the docs for that directive which include:

Context:	server config, virtual host

Meaning that this directive can be set in the main server context, or
<VirtualHost, but not in a container like <Location or <Directory.

As for your original post, if you don't have an issue with bandwidth
but otherwise want to speep up your site, are you sure adding the
overhead of compression is wise?

Also, I expect your SetOutputFilter is too general and may end up
having apache try in vain to compress image files.
