seems this is not the case

[danny at f11 tmp]$ cp /usr/share/fonts/japanese-bitmap/kaname-latin1.pcf.gz .
[danny at f11 tmp]$ file kaname-latin1.pcf.gz
kaname-latin1.pcf.gz: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Fri Mar
27 08:05:07 2009, max compression
[danny at f11 tmp]$ file -z kaname-latin1.pcf.gz
kaname-latin1.pcf.gz: empty (gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified:
Fri Mar 27 08:05:07 2009, max compression)
[danny at f11 tmp]$ gunzip kaname-latin1.pcf.gz
[danny at f11 tmp]$ file kaname-latin1.pcf 
kaname-latin1.pcf: empty
[danny at f11 tmp]$

reassigning to japanese-bitmap-fonts owner: is this normal? zero-length fonts
seem a bit strange...

p.s. there are also some fonts in the directory, which do not gunzip to empty
files, and those are correctly identified by "file -z" as fonts
