./configure --with-http_gzip_static_module ...

     location /js/ {
         gzip_static   on;

         # common directives with gzip filter module
         gzip_http_version   1.1;
         gzip_proxied        expired no-cache no-store private auth;
         gzip_disable        "MSIE [1-6]\.";
         gzip_vary           on;

Then a request /js/prototype.js will be handled by /js/prototype.js or
by precompressed /js/prototype.js.gz if it is exist.
Try to keep the same keep modification time of both files.
