The new bsdtar (by way of libarchive) can read zip files quite nicely.
At least most of them, in my experience. According to the man page
libarchive-formats(5):

   Zip format
     Libarchive can extract from most zip format archives.  It
     currently only supports uncompressed entries and entries
     compressed with the ``deflate'' algorithm.  Older zip
     compression algorithms are not supported.


The base system tar is bsdtar (from 5.3-RELEASE, I think)
