Make Redhat (again..)

I wonder if I see errors everywhere or if I'm the only one using RPM.. :'( In the spec file there's a line in which 'sed' is invoked

sed -e 's/\.1$/.1.gz/'

to convert .1 extensions for man pages in .1.gz; but what if the system produces man pages in .bz2 format?

As you guessed it's what happened to me.. 'make install' has produced bz2 man pages while the script make rpm search for files names *.gz
