    media-sound/flacon: fix compressed man pages on 9.0.0
    The Makefile contained instructions for installing gzip
    compressed man pages to certain locations, which
    resulted in the QA error: "
     * QA Notice: One or more compressed files were found in docompress-ed
     * directories. Please fix the ebuild not to install compressed files
     * (manpages, documentation) when automatic compression is used:
     *   /usr/share/man/man1/flacon.1.gz
    Installing the uncompressed version of flacon.1 fixes the issue.
