Firstly if you are gentle you should be able to re-use your old gaskets. I keep a set of gaskets just in case but in the 12 or so Doohickeys I've done I've only replaced the gaskets once and that was more cause the guy bought them and wanted to use them. I think I still have his old gaskets here.
What I do, and not saying it's right, is coat the gasket with a thin layer of RTV silicone. Get some silicone on my fingers and just rub it on both sides of the gaskets. Take the time to clean any gasket material off of the cases.
