By default, UnZip does not support shrink decompression. To enable it or to obtain more information, check out the UnZip FAQ at http://www.info-zip.org/pub/infozip/FAQ.html#unshrink.
Install UnZip by running the following commands:
patch -Np1 -i ../unzip-5.51-fix-Makefile.patch && patch -Np1 -i ../unzip-5.51-fix-libz.patch && patch -Np1 -i ../unzip-5.51-dont-make-noise.patch && cp unix/Makefile . && make prefix=/usr linux && make prefix=/usr linux_shlibz && make prefix=/usr install && cp -a libunzip.so* /usr/lib
make prefix=/usr linux: This command overrides the prefix variable that is set to /usr/local in the Makefile and builds the executables for a linux system. The alternatives to 'linux' can be seen with a 'make list' command.
make prefix=/usr linux_shlibz: Build shared libunzip and link UnZip against it and zlib.
The UnZip package contains unzip , funzip, unzipfsx, zipgrep and zipinfo.
unzipfsx is the self-extracting stub that can be prepended to a ZIP archive. Files in this format allow the recipient to decompress the archive without installing UnZip.
