anyone got zsh 4.x working on Interix/SFU 3.0?

Trying to get zsh 4.0.6 to compile under Windows SFU 3.0/Interix using gcc.
Compile goes fine except it needed an XTABS entry and ./configure


Globbing does not seem to work.  

>touch ab
>ls *b
zsh: no matches found: *

>touch \*b
>ls *b

It appears that the "*" is not being treated as a glob character.  

I checked that setopt glob is set.  


setopt autocd
setopt autopushd
setopt autoresume
setopt cdablevars
setopt correct
setopt correctall
setopt extendedglob
setopt globdots
setopt histignoredups
setopt longlistjobs
setopt mailwarning
setopt noautoparamslash
setopt nobgnice
setopt noclobber
setopt pushdminus
setopt pushdsilent
setopt pushdtohome
setopt rcquotes
setopt recexact

I don't see "setopt glob".  I do see "setopt extendedglob".  Is this
sufficient?  Running "setopt glob" does not make it show up in the list.

I can provide the complete output of reporter if necessary.

Searching the web/faqs, I found the following:

This is stupid, but have you tried doing `setopt
glob' before trying a pattern match on files?

Next, does

[[ foo = f* ]] && print "that worked"

work?  If not, it looks like pattern.c wasn't compiled properly.  In that
case, it may be some alignment problem.  You can probe a bit further by

[[ foo = foo ]] && print "it worked that time"

since strings are optimised not to do full pattern matching.

I am seeing what is described above at this link. 

[[ foo = f* ]] ...  fails
[[ foo = foo ]] ... works fine

Any suggestions?
