GNU Emacs-21.2, Windows XP, and pkunzip

   I am using GNU Emacs-21.2 on a Windows XP Professional system.
The default program used to unzip packages is 'pkunzip'.  By default I
mean that if you do not have this program then emacs will complain
about not being able to find 'pkunzip' when you try to unzip a file.
Please consider using InfoZip's 'unzip' instead of PKWARE's
'pkunzip'.  The program 'unzip' is 'free' while 'pkunzip' is

   I had 'unzip' on my system but emacs do not notice until I changed
the variable archive-zip-use-pkzip to nil.  Now that there is a 'free'
easy to download version of 'unzip' there is no more reason to have
any reference to 'pkunzip' a 'non-free' program.
