Hi...

See the "README" file in the Batteries distribution:

**** Requirements ****
You will need
...
* Camlzip   (http://cristal.inria.fr/~xleroy/software.html#camlzip)
  ( Note: By default, the distribution of Camlzip is note quite sufficient for
actual use.
    We provide the missing files in directory camlzip/ .)
...

Maybe that explanation could be a bit more thorough... (and I think
"note quite" should be "not quite" ).

Cheers,
Peter
