Yes of course.  On all other systems I know (and I tesed zsh on 8 different
Unix systems) setvbuf ignores the last argument of setvbuf if the second
argument is NULL.  And conditional compilation is probably has been put
there because there were some systems without setvbuf or _IOFBF.  And only
NeXTStep people complained about slow refresh so I'm pretty sure that
NeXTStep is the only system with this behaviour.

And I used static buffer instead of passing NULL to make sure that it will
really work.  I can imagine that some other system's buggy libc would
interpret non-zero last argument as if you had given it a buffer at address
