Hello Jess,

the release notes (WHATSNEW file) contains this blurb :

Provide more control over Zip64 extensions created by <zip> and
   related tasks.  In particular no Zip64 extensions will be used at
   all by the <jar> task family by default - this is required for jars
   to be readably by Java5.
   Bugzilla Report 54762

So I suppose that the problem that you are referring to is fixed in the current svn trunk
and this fix will be include in ant 1.9.1
