<unzip>&Co extract absolute paths at the root.

I support it depends on how absolute paths in zip files
should be treated.

The jar command can handle zip files (jar files are zip files),
it honours the absolute path.

The linux unzip command does not honour the absolute path,
it strips the leading / and treats the paths as relative
paths. It does this with a lot of whining:

warning:  stripped absolute path spec from /
mapname:  conversion of  failed
warning:  stripped absolute path spec from /home/
   creating: home/
warning:  stripped absolute path spec from /home/preilly/
   creating: home/preilly/
warning:  stripped absolute path spec from /home/preilly/tmp/
   creating: home/preilly/tmp/
warning:  stripped absolute path spec from /home/preilly/tmp/build.xml
  inflating: home/preilly/tmp/build.xml

Since <unzip/> and <unjar/> are basicly the same task,
it would be odd to have different behaviour for them.
