I agree that the NetBSD message is neater.
If the NetBSD gzip(1) command is intended as a drop-in
replacement for the GNU one, then I think this is one of those
times when standard is better than better.
It's not a serious issue either way, and you may note I filed
the bug report with 'low' severity. :-)
If it's decided to close the bug report without change (not
what I recommend, naturally) at least the difference is
documented in the PR.
