The best would be to support the most popular zip file algorithm.

To avoid problems make a new directory and then download the whole files 
needed to write freepascal programs. So if something is not working then 
still there is an older directory that is ok. In the future updates can be 
done with a more sophisticated solution. But at the beginning there is a 
functioning solution.

I am not familiar exactly with the libraries.
You mean the C Libraries?
Aren't they already there in the Linux distribution?
