paste =(typeset +) =(set)

or perhaps (following is one line, gmail may wrap it)

print -lr -- ${(*)${(Aok)parameters}//(#m)*/${(Pt)MATCH} "$(typeset -m

(Use "setopt extendedglob" instead of (*) for zsh before 5.9)

The internal value for FPATH is determined by the build-time options
to match the install locations of the functions.  There are typically
two options:  Place all the function files in a single directory
(which results in a short FPATH but possible name collisions) or
preserve the source tree directory hierarchy (which results in what
you saw).  The latter is often used because then it's possible to
(after the fact) omit directories that are not relevant.

Please disconnect fignore from FPATH in your brain.  They are totally
unrelated things.  You may be thinking of fpath, which is the
tied-array equivalent of the FPATH tied-scalar.
