zsh dumps core on startup on osf1

Hi all,

I'm using a Alpha that's running OSF1 V3.2 214.  When I try to build zsh-3.1.0,
I get a couple of problems.

First, here's the configuration that configure comes up with:

zsh configuration
zsh version           : 3.1.0
host operating system : osf3.2
source code location  : .
compiler              : gcc
compiler flags        : -ggdb3 -O
binary install path   : /usr/local/bin
man page install path : /usr/local/man
info install path     : /usr/local/info

The first problem is pretty small.  The Makefile can't build zsh.info from

Making info file `zsh.info' from `./zsh.texi'.
./zsh.texi:6810: Unknown command `br'.
./zsh.texi:6810: Misplaced `{'.
./zsh.texi:6810: Misplaced `}'.
Info documentation cannot be compiled without makeinfo.
You can find precompiled info files in zsh-doc.tar.gz.        

The second problem is that zsh-3.1.0 dumps core each time I try to run it,
which is a little worse. :)  Here's a backtrace of the core dump:
