I take it there no problems with the clear ldflags then?

What version of autoconf do you have? I'd be suprised if 2.5x doesn't
handle MacOS X.

Judging by one section of zshconfig.ac, it is probably a zsh problem.
Can you try with this patch. You will need to rerun autoconf (or
Util/preconfig) or manually apply this to configure itself.

Does anyone know if ${enable_zsh_debug} is definitely empty for a no
value as I've assumed here? The -x option may not be right in which case
we could use nothing.
