GZIP problem with backend hosts

I first of all thought I had a problem with our backend hosts not
sending GZIP content, but it appears NGINX is at fault.
We use nginx infront of a lot of Amazon instances. The backend
instances, prepare the content in GZIP'd form.
However nginx, is taking this content, and then decompressing it, and
giving out the decompressed version back to the originating client!!
I do not want nginx to do the compressing; the load can be better
handled with the backend instances. I just want nginx to proxy what its
given and not do too much to the stream coming back.
