>Description:
FreeBSD unzip utility do not  extract archive with password set.

When extracting such archive, I used unzip(1) installed from ports, though I use normal 
zip archive with FreeBSD-tar.

After BSD unzip utility comes to the base, I cannot extract such archive, because
the BSD unzip utility is executed instead of normal unzip utility.

>How-To-Repeat:
Try to unzip archive with password, in clean installed account, with unzip-port installed.
>Fix:
chmod a-x /usr/bin/unzip 
or
move /usr/local/bin to the head of your command search PATH.

The best solution is to support extracting archive with password.
