No it isn't.  The FAQ says that you should not change zle_tricky.c.  If it
compiles after your change it means that you did not change the header file.
The correct prototype for yp_all is

extern int yp_all(char *, char *, struct ypall_callback *);

That's what the faq says.  zle_tricky.c is correct.  Fix
/usr/inclide/rpcsvc/ypclnt.h.  If you do not have root privileges ask your
sysadmin to do it.  Or you may create an rpcsvc subdirectory in the zsh
