Oh, one bit I overlooked -- if you're running zsh with $fpath pointing
into the build tree, it will not find the help files without some more
configuration -- the location is substituted into the run-help function
definition by "make install".

To run out of the build tree, you have to explicitly assign the HELPDIR
parameter to point to the appropriate Doc/help subdirectory.

Sorry Bart I don't have any idea what you mean.

3 /aWorking 2$ echo $fpath
/usr/local/share/zsh/site-functions /aWorking/zsh-5.2-test-3/share/zsh/site-functions /aWorking/zsh-5.2-test-3/share/zsh/5.2-test-3/functions

... the first directory doesn't exist, the others are correct (based on " --prefix= "), and why would I want $fpath pointing anywhere else? Anyway, as yesterday, " $ run-help test " takes me to "zshbuiltins" and that's what I want, no? Throw in Daniel's insights into better searching, and it's pretty functional.

However " $ run-help zmv " finds nothing, tho it is there in 'zshall' but just a single line.
