I guess, libzip.so is standard component of Linux, but on Windows it (1)
has different name (only zip.dll), and (2) is loaded from
JAVA_HOME\jre\bin and lazy by java.lang.System.initializeSystemClass().
So it's another mystery, why loadLibrary("zip") in
java.lang.System.initializeSystemClass() doesn't thow an exception on
Linux, as it is named "libzip.so".
