That *is* relevant.  My Mac is behind an institutional firewall, so this
might be aggravating the problem.  Also I am not able to duplicate the
headers as Ryan showed using curl -I, not with the facebook.net URL.  I
will ask our network admins about this.

It sounds like Raf and Mojca are reporting correct, compressed downloads
from this site, and I am the only one so far that has actually reported
incorrect, uncompressed downloads.  (I checked; my mac gets the same
malfunction with all .tar.gz files from facebook.net, not just the groff
file.)  Does anyone else here get the incorrect, uncompressed result, which
is 17 Mb rather than the expected 4 Mb?

Reminder:  curl -O -R
