Hi Andrej :)

Well, then that was the problem, since I didn't add/remove a
module. When you talk about 'module', do you refer to the dinamically
loadable parts of zsh or other thing? I don't get the point O:)

I think that's a great idea. So everytime zsh is reconfigured,
those paths change :)

Ok, I misunderstood that.

IS NOT a good choice at all... I didn't mean that dir, but
$prefix/lib/zsh. A typo, sorry O:)))

Yes, I know, and that's a good strategy, but I would like to be
able to change that. It will be quite useful for me :)

Because one of my enterprise projects is a-kind-of-embedded-system
which has a very limited filesystem, and we want all apps under a
'short' hierarchy. Moreover, our sysadmin doesn't like deep
directories (he's strange, but we love him ;)))).
Obviously the first reason is the important one ;))) We are going
with a patched version of zsh, but we would like to do this thru
>> module and so it can be removed, aren't they?

Don't worry, it fits. It barely fits on the root floppy, but
fits, which is the important here. We have removed 'ash' and keep
going with 'zsh' :)) Dammit, it's good ;)))
Thanks a lot for being so accesible and so kind with my
suggestions. A good shell with a good workgroups. Who could ask for
