Right, Kaffe's configure does that. But rather than porting the code
over, to Classpath's configure, I'd prefer to add a test for jar/fastjar
and have the build use that instead of zip, where available.

Since Kaffe installs its own zip tool, and gcj installs fastjar, I'd
expect both to be available out of the box on systems where zip may not

In particular with respect to Kaffe's bootstrap proces for the next
version, I'd like to be able to use a freshly built fastjar to 
bootstrap GNU Classpath. 

So I'd like to propose a --with-fastjar[=path-to-fastjar] switch to
configure, and associated makefile condition variables
to make current Makefiles using zip chose the right tool with the right
options. Given that zip and jar largely do the same thing, I could try
to whip out a patch.
