If I've read this correctly, it sounds like it's worth trying to


in the zsh configuration just to see what happens (and then "make
clean" and "make").  This should have one of two effects (i) ino_t
becomes 32 bits, which works around (but does not properly fix) the
problem (ii) the compilation will fail because 32-bit sizes aren't
available in that configuration, which doesn't confirm this is
necessarily a problem but might be a hint.

If it is the issue, it's going to take some detective work by someone on
MacOS as grepping the code doesn't reveal an obviously missing use of
ino_t in the zsh code --- worth checking if ino_t is actually
correctly typedef'd.

If that's not the issue, then back to the drawing board.
