Cannot reproduce, packages fine for me.

It wants obrender-3.0 and obparser-3.0.
Following a recent update, only obrender-3.5 is provided, obparser was removed.
No newer version exists, and overriding the configure checks makes the package
fail because of a missing header file.

Fixed. (zip is not a tool.)

removing them :)
