::zipfile::mkzip::walk fails with sub-directories which names start with '-', due to missing '--' in glob expressions.

Can be reproduced like this:

$ mkdir -- -1
$ ls
$ tclsh
% package require Tcl 8.6
% package require zipfile::mkzip
% ::zipfile::mkzip::mkzip -directory .
bad option "-1/*": must be -directory, -join, -nocomplain, -path, -tails, -types, or --
Please consider applying the attached patch with a fix.

Fixed with commit [5f3611f96a].

Patch accepted as is for the fix.
Added a testsuite for mkzip.
Well, the seed of one.
Currently covers only the basic wrong#args and this issue.
