BeLife Zipped file doesn't decompress under Haiku (UnZip by Info-Zip)

This file was straight from BeBits, and although I'm unsure how the original author compressed it, Haiku's built-in decompressor, can't extract the contents.

I've tested the Zip under both OSX and Windows with their default extractors, and they both have no problem...

Haiku complains 'End of central-directory structure not found'. Either it's not a zip file, or it's part of a multi-volume archive'.

Is it possible to compile Info-Zip to be more flexible with zips that have errors? The end effect is, with Windows and OSX I ended up with a perfectly extracted binary, in Haiku I didn't.

unzip isn't very helpful with corrupted archives. One can eventually use other already ported zip extractors (ie fastjar). Closing as it isn't an Haiku specific problem.
