It's hard to tell, but I believe the version in the PHP source is newer than the one in the standalone extension source, so I don't believe a change is needed in the php5-zip port at this time. Of course if you have information to the contrary please let me know.
You're totally right, it seems there are some memory leaks fixed in src/ext/ which are not in pecl/.
