/usr/share/cracklib/pw_dict.pwd is 8.3M.  With gzip -9, this goes down to 3.6M, and still works (see the cracklib-format man page).

Please add gzip -9 to the specfile. Thanks!

Impossible due to terrible performance impact.

In that case, can we do bug #865521? I guess I'll bring this up on the Fedora security list.
