Hmm ... they both have very different semantic. LFS means, use existing
interfaces but assume some parameters are 64 bit (off_t, size_t, ino_t to
name some).

LFS64 means - you are explicitly using special 64-bit version of these
interfaces (open64 vs. open, stat64 vs. stat etc) that are using special
types (off64_t, ino64_t etc). Zsh is not designed to do it.

So, if the above change really helped, it was just because zsh was
actually compiled in 32-bit mode :-) We simply need better detection if
LFS really works. Could you provide testcase suitable for putting in
