Build Identifier:

Currently, attempting to install packages in R will error if the source is a
zip file (very common). R-base should depend on `zip` and `unzip` utilities.

When R is built, if it notices the zip and unzip commands are in the PATH it
sets the following environment variables for the R interpreter: R_UNZIPCMD and

Since R-base does not depend on `zip` and `unzip`, R_UNZIPCMD and R_ZIPCMD are
never set and thus packages fail to install.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Downloading GitHub repo rstudio/rsconnect@master
from URL
Installation failed: error in running command

Actual Results:
R fails to install the package because it fails to find the `unzip` utility

Expected Results:
It should install the package

- install `zip`
- install `unzip`
- set the R_UNZIPCMD and R_ZIPCMD to values in ~/.Renviron fixes the issue

cat ~/.Renviron
