 There isn't PKUnzip, but there is Info-ZIP which is directly compatible.
  Here's a site where you can download it, with installation instructions -

  http://www.c3.lanl.gov/inmm/zipunix.html

- or, you can download precompiled versions here -

 Yeah - and the unzip for Linux is Info-Zip ... not PKUnzip, which is specifically the version for PC's by Phil Katz (PK).
  Info-Zip is completely compatible with PKZip/PKUnzip because they use the same compression technique.

 I'm fairly sure that if you just type 'unzip' by itself, on Linux, with no parameters that it should display a little banner with usage, etc.
  This should say something like 'Info-Zip', I believe.
