Apache MIME Types: No display of .gz, .c, etc.?

Well, last time I had MIME woes I was able to figure it out, but not this time, so I'm admitting defeat and asking for help. There are currently two problems with my Apache setup (on Debian amd64, version 2.2.3-4+etch6) I have mod_deflate, mod_mime, mod_mime_magic, and mod_negotiation on. (Are there other relevant ones?)

1) I have a textfile domain.tld/textfile.gz which is not being deflated and displayed, but keeps popping up as "Download this to...?" in Firefox.
2) Similarly, domain.tld/csourcefile.c does not display, but starts a download queury.

.txt and .unknown ASCII/UTF-8 file are displayed fine.

My application handlers in my web browser were clean, so I do believe something is wrong with my apache config. Any ideas? Thanks!
