In the non-working 4/24 build, HAVE_CURSES_H, HAVE_TERMIO_H, and
HAVE_TERMIOS_H are defined and HAVE_TERM_H and HAVE_TERMCAP_H are not
defined.  See the attached config.h:

Attachment: config.h
Description: SunOS-4.1 config.h generated from Apr-24 CVS

The only difference between that config.h file and the one from Apr-17
(which works) is that the new config.h file apparently checks for
SETUPTERM, and does not find it:

OK.  I found a little time to investigate further.  This is truly
ugly.  curses.h includes the following definitions:

extern char	*AL, *BC, *BT, *CD, *CE, *CL, *CM, *CR, *CS, *DC, *DL,
		*DM, *DO, *ED, *EI, *K0, *K1, *K2, *K3, *K4, *K5, *K6,

		*KR, *KS, *KU, *LL, *MA, *ND, *NL, *RC, *SC, *SE, *SF,
		*SO, *SR, *TA, *TE, *TI, *UC, *UE, *UP, *US, *VB, *VS,

'DO' conflicts with the 'DO' token from zsh.h.  I guess curses.h
predates any kind of useful namespace standard.
