Short description of error
Attempting to install an addon from a zip file will fail with the following error:

Python: Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Applications/", line 609, in execute
    import zipfile
  File "/Applications/", line 6, in <module>
    import binascii
ImportError: dlopen(/Applications/, 2): Library not   loaded: libz.1.dylib
