it's been a long time since i used one but some zip utilities allowed passing of command line arguments. with this ability you can use cfexecute

<cfexecute
name = "path to zip exe"
arguments ="the arguments "
timeout="15">
</cfexecute>

note that permissions can be an issue if you are using cfexecute on a file or folder on a network path
