The problem lies in the README files in the OlcPlus package.  It clearly
New features:
   set <person> olc <#> has been removed.  Implementors now ZEDIT in
      the appropriate zone and edit the builder list.
      [ note, this *will* need to patch your world files. ]

Basically, zone builder privs are given by a Builder List, similar to:

B) Builders: Caniffe Saxen Tekhen

You can either manually change the .zon files, or use Zedit to edit it
(with a Grgod+)...

A typical .zon file looks like:

Typical Zone File~
Caniffe Saxen Tekhen~
799 30 2

Simply add a new line with the builders separated by spaces after the zone
name.  Or, even more simply, use zedit.
