Unbelievable. I downloaded the original sources, as suggested, and
unzipped one of the problem files. It works properly, just as it did
for you. I don't know how FC can break something like unzip.
Original unzip gives the following:
$ unzip-5.51/unzip bin-latex.i386-linux.zip
linking: bin/i386-linux/latex -> pdfetex
finishing deferred symbolic links:
bin/i386-linux/latex -> pdfetex
FC3 unzip gives the following:
$ unzip bin-latex.i386-linux.zip
linking: bin/i386-linux/latex warning: symbolic link
error: zipfile probably corrupt (segmentation violation)
Sorry about bringing up something that is specific to FC3.
