    Nope, they're not identical. The first specifically unzips it into the file
    system, leaving the zip file intact. The second, you're having to take all
    those .o files and other stuff that the 'make' generates and put them back
    into the .zip file *on the fly* - when the 'make' is half done, the .zip should
    reflect a directory tree that has had half the make execute....

    (Think - after that hyptothetical 'make' completes, where is 'vmlinux'? ;)
