I've seen epubcheck scream if you don't have some of those flags. I'm not positive about which ones, but at least one of them is definitely required. Probably not -9; it's just a good idea. I think it was the -X flag, without which, at least in OS X, you get all sorts of errors about illegal fields in the ZIP file caused by the way it preserves file permissions and EAs. I'm assuming most of the same behavior occurs in Linux.

Right. The hack to remove Finder turds is definitely not required on Linux.
