In the pgp 2.6 config.txt file there are only two options for compression:

Compress = off


Compress = on

Tried looking through the documentation  'which' compression 2.x uses, but couldn't find the specific one. 
but did find that there was a problem with 'decompression' in 2.4 which was changed to 2.6

It may be that it's a variant unique to pgp.

I'll try to see what happens in Disastry's version, if it will accept gnupg's compression
