Support disabling docompress for binary package builds
Add FEATURES=binpkg-docompress that can be used whether docompress compression is performed before or after creating binary packages. With the feature enabled (the default), the current behavior of storing compressed files in binpkg is preserved. With it disabled, uncompressed files are stored inside binary package and are compressed when installing. Storing uncompressed files in binary packages has two advantages: 1. Avoids the double-compression penalty, effectively improving binary package compression speed and compression ratio. 2. Allows the same packages to be reused on systems with different docompress configurations. The option is roughly backwards compatible. Old Portage versions will install packages created with FEATURES=-binpkg-docompress correctly, albeit without compression. Portage with FEATURES=binpkg-docompress should install old binpackages semi-correctly, potentially recompressing them (and throwing already-compressed warnings on format mismatch). The new behavior is left off by default to avoid those problems. Signed-off-by: Michał Górny <mgorny@gentoo.org> Reviewed-by: Zac Medico <zmedico@gentoo.org>
