Gzip fonts with asset pipeline

I’m using asset pipeline for fonts (app/assets/fonts).
asset pipeline does process the fonts directory when I precompile, but
it
is not creating a gzip version for the font files (while it is creating
ones for the JS/css files).
I’m using apache + passanger for serving rails.
Is there a way to make asset pipeline create gzip file for the font
files?

Thanks,
Yuval

As far as I can tell this is just hard coded into action pack:

https://github.com/rails/rails/blob/3-2-stable/actionpack/lib/sprockets/static_compiler.rb#L40

If I remember correctly, it’s quite tricky to get apache to use the
pre-gzipped files - you might find it sufficient to have apache gzip
them
