I've just now updated MacTeX 2013.

After the update kpsewhich inconsolata.sty gives:


and  kpsewhich zi4.sty gives


These are essentially identical.

In the package itself there is no tex/inconsolata.sty
The README of the inconsolata package tells you what you could do with doc/fonts/inconsolata.sty

See http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/inconsolata

It appears that the MacTeX update has automatically taken care of the inconsolata.sty and zi4.sty issue.
