Disable gzip inside an IF statement?

I need to conditionally enable gzip, based on a variable.
When I try to use an "if" statement, it doesn't work, nginx complains I can't use "gzip" inside of "if".
Looking at the manual, I see gzip has the following context allowed:
"context: http, server, location, if (x) location"
What does "if (x) location" mean? I couldn't find an example.
Alternatively, if someone can suggest a way to disable gzip dynamically from within PHP, that would be great. It's possible to do this in Apache:
<?php apache_setenv("no-gzip","1"); ?>
But obviously that function isn't supported in nginx.
