That seems to be the best option for you at the moment.

If you have the time, it might be worth abstracting out the zip reading
functionality so you can swap out the actual compression components used
as needed. This will allow your application to change compression tools
in future, without your application code needing any changes. This is
always a good design philosophy when it comes to using 3rd party components.

While working at a previous employer we use the TurboPower suite of
compression components under Windows and Linux with great success, but
could also swap it out for the FPC included ZLib unit.
