Even weirder is a modern administrative tool's dependence on such an
archaic and obsolete utility. Haven't they heard of tar, gzip, InfoZip,
even lha? I doubt that contemporary developers would be unaware of
these, let alone require something similar from the Dark Ages.

Might it instead be referring to ArcServe, an established commercial
backup/recovery package? Could you trick it by putting, say, a null
shell script named 'arc' in its path?
