Don't worry, It Just Works(TM) :-)

Just make sure that configure can find zlib (w/ development
headers). If unsure, double-check that HAVE_LIBZ is 1 in config.h. 
Then Bro will decode gzip content encodings and pass the unzipped
data on to http-body's pattern matching.

(If this doesn't seem to work for you even though configure found
zlib, please send me a small trace and a signature which reproduce
the problem.)
