This is not totally correct. There was a bug in Debian that somehow
prevented the build tools to set HAVE_UNZIP to 1 even if it was
installed, for which reason we had an ugly patch, which apparently now
is not getting applied, as the location of the file has changed.

I will update the package ASAP.

By the way, Michelle, could you please have a look at your bugs at 


There are some mysterious reports which I am very much tempted to close,
because apparently you had some private discussions with Patrick and
didn't include any details in the report a normal person would be able
