    Checkin started some changes to the way the TCL_ZIP_FILE is built. Unfortunately the changes lead to failing tests in a common scenario.

    If your workspace happens to include an empty directory tcl/library/http1.0 (which many do, because of development history), the old system for building the TCL_ZIP_FILE would not include it, but the new system does include it, or so I surmise.

    The consequence is that several tests (zipfs-0.[345678]) fail in zipfs.test.

    I'm open to several points of view whether it is the tests themselves or the new builder of TCL_ZIP_FILE that is broken, but this should be resolved.
