False positive: self-compiled INFO-ZIP (zip.exe, unzip.exe)

Just started using Malwarebytes on a particular Windows 7 machine, did a scan with the AI on, and it flagged 2 programs (zip.exe and unzip.exe), both of which I know to be safe, because I had compiled them from sources with the OpenWatcom compiler. Trying to run also immediately quarantined them. No harm done, i simply added them to the allow-list of the Malwarebytes program. From the other messages on this forum, it looks like flagging self-compiled programs is a common problem here. Is it useful to send them as samples?
