Nginx on Debian testing compiled without gzip_static?

Your installation is a bit old, and I have not seen problems removing the
package on recently updated testing systems.  Also, testing is frozen right
now pending release, so there will not be updates on testing.  Unstable has
nginx 0.6.34 and experimental has ngin 0.7.14 - no idea if gzip is enabled
on either of these.  You can easily just get the source package and modify
the debian/rules file to fit your needs or build your own custom debian
package.  Google has lots of guides for doing both.

However, in the future,  you should really direct these concerns to the
package maintainer who created the package.  You can do so by emailing Jose
Parrella whose address is bureado at ; whenever you have an issue
with a debian package you should take it up with the package maintainer!
