But why is pkg-get trying to download a gzipped file when that's not
what the catalog states?

As you can see the filename in the catalog is not gzipped. I can
understand there's a problem if the catalog and the actual file does
not match but in this case they do.

Pkgutil downloads it fine, I just tested. Chkcat would also spot
uncompress packages. :-)
