Comment(by mwester):

 A better solution would be to have the "gzip" package added to the feeds,
 so that "opkg install gzip" would make the full non-busybox version of
 gzip available.

 Unfortunately it seems that the current feeds lack this utility, but
 rectifying that would probably be faster and more correct than modifying
 busybox or Perl modules.
