Install Zip by running the following commands:
sed -i -e 's@$(INSTALL) man/zip.1@$(INSTALL_PROGRAM) man/zip.1@' \ unix/Makefile && make prefix=/usr -f unix/Makefile generic_gcc
This package does not come with a test suite.
Now, as the root user:
make prefix=/usr -f unix/Makefile install
sed -i -e ... unix/Makefile: The Makefile has a bug which causes the installation to fail. This command fixes the problem.
make prefix=/usr -f unix/Makefile generic_gcc: This command overrides the prefix variable that is set to /usr/local in the unix/Makefile which is used as a Makefile and builds the executables for a Linux system. The alternatives to generic_gcc can be seen with a make -f unix/Makefile list command.
