Staging support, man pages, MANx and portlint

Hello, Ports.

 Wiki on Stage dir support says, that if port supports staging, MANx
variables in Makefile is useless and I need simply list all man pages in
pkg-plist and they will be gzipped automagically.

 portlint -A says, that I need to list all man pages as gzipped (xxx.1.gz,
not xxx.1).

 But when I use non-standard path for man pages, man pages ARE NOT gzipped
automagically, and they should be lsited in pkg-plist without ".gz" suffix,
or "make package" will complain.

 How could I turn on gizpping of man pages in such case?
