I don't think yours is the version listed on the Archlinux's website.
Archlinux links to Info-ZIP's website, and according to the source

I would guess that's an older version of zip ... and apparently it
doesn't support some of the options used in make-jars.pl.

Where is the zip binary located (i.e. what do you get with "which

it's in /usr/bin, is there a way to check whether all the packages in
the installation is up-to-date, or at least uninstall and reinstall?



P.S. It's quite peculiar that you couldn't find a manpage. Normally
