The inflate and deflate functions of gzip can handle any
size of data. So why do we just fix this by allowing over
4 Gb of data to be compressed by NetBSD's gzip ?

The problem will mostly arise when deflating over 4 Gb
data, so the warning could be kept to inform the user
that either gzip 1.3.5 or patched 1.2 will be required to
deflate properly over 4 Gb data.
