Adding to a windows zip file without zip.exe

Cygwin is currently installed on over a hundred windows 2003 servers, and is
used to do some admin tasks as well as to pull files from the servers on a
daily basis via ssh. One of the files pulled from each server is a windows
I want to add an extra file to this ZIP file using a script. I looked at
both DOS batch scripts and cygwin shell scripts but have run into problems
because the cygwin installed on these boxes doesnt contain ZIP.exe, and the
PKZIP.exe I would used with a batch script is so old it only accepts 8.3
Updating the servers with new cygwin or command line packages is not an
option at this point.
That being said, I am a huge cygwin fan and am not willing to give up on a
shell script as my solution quite yet.
The cygwin version on the servers does have gzip, gunzip, bzip2, bunzip2,
Unfortunatly I have as yet been unsucceful in using these tools to add a
file to my windows zip archive.
