Unforutnately, you haven't got debug symbols in the installed zsh, so
it's not showing much of interest --- though it does certainly suggest
something is up.

I suspect that's going to have to be the next step, if you get the
chance.  In the top-level directory, run configure as

./configure --enable-zsh-debug

and then "make", and that should give you an installable executable that
gives useful debug information ("sudo make install" will put zsh in
/usr/local/bin; you can remove anything it installs in /usr/local later).

Thanks for the assistance
