Symptoms

Unzip emits error messages when unzipping Solaris 10 Recommended Patchsets.

Example error message:

---
warning [10_Recommended.zip]:  76 extra bytes at beginning or within zipfile
  (attempting to process anyway)
error [10_Recommended.zip]:  reported length of central directory is
  -76 bytes too long (Atari STZip zipfile?  J.H.Holm ZIPSPLIT 1.1
  zipfile?).  Compensating...
note:  didn't find end-of-central-dir signature at end of central dir.
  (please check that you have transferred or created the zipfile in the
  appropriate BINARY mode and that you have compiled UnZip properly)
