Thanks for replying. I am still unable to get zsh to load in the
normal way. I am building zsh myself. I read in the bug report
document to try the zsh -f command and then eliminate things out
of the .zsh* files until it works. I couldn't find any info in
the man page about zsh -f, but the bug report document said it
basically runs only through the /etc/zshenv file.
When I first ran zsh -f without any /etc/zshenv file, it worked
without any customization. I first eliminated .zshrc, then
.zshenv without the -f and it still didn't work. I then copied
my .zshenv to /etc/zshenv and used -f; it worked. Then I copied
.zshrc to /etc/zshenv, using -f it worked again. I concatenated
.zshenv and .zshrc to /etc/zshenv, and using -f, it worked.
This was all still under version 3.1.5. So I rebuilt it using the
zsh-mem feature. All the previous tests repeated exactly the same
as before (I didn't use this feature the first time).
Now I have updated to 3.1.6 and tried again. Still it is working
only with the -f option.
I have two HP workstations, one is the aforementioned HP 735 Apollo,
the other is a Visualize C240. Both 3.1.5 and 3.1.6 are working
fine on the Visualize, only the Apollo 735 is having problems.
Any other ideas? Should I submit a bug report?

I used the enable-dynamic and redirected the prefix to /opt/zsh

No, as far as I can tell

I have now, and it shows no other files being executed.

It still performs the same.
