archivers/zip in 9.x:

I think I saw something in the list that FreeBSD 9.x has zip already 
built in? so, ports that need 'zip' won't need zip?

for maintainers, they should use something like:

USE_ZIP=        yes


if ${OSVERSION} <= 900000
USE_ZIP=    yes

and/or BUILD_DEPENDS+=    zip:${PORTSDIR}/archivers/zip

(at what OSVERSION was zip included in the base?)
