Bill, thanks for these hints. I do not have any ~/.curlrc. On my mac, the
behavior was not affected in any way by --compress, --compressed,
--compressed-ssh, or --tr-encoding (two different curl versions). This was
true for both the misbehaving mirror.facebook.net, as well as for a normal
mirror site. It was as if our gateway was disabling or bypassing all of
these command line options, regardless of the target website.
