On the server, I unpacked the zsh 4.3.9 and applied all FreeBSD
patches made by ports. After that I greped for TGETENT_ACCPETS_NULL.

server$ cd /usr/ports/shells/zsh
server$ make patch
server$ cd work/zsh-4.3.9
server$ grep -r 'TGETENT_ACCEPTS_NULL' ./
./config.h.in:#undef TGETENT_ACCEPTS_NULL
./Src/init.c:#ifndef TGETENT_ACCEPTS_NULL
./Src/init.c:#ifdef TGETENT_ACCEPTS_NULL
./configure:#define TGETENT_ACCEPTS_NULL 1

I think these are the options zsh was installed on server. If you need
the options zsh port was compiled, it will take me more time. I have
no root acces on the server.

I set TERM to 'linux' on the server before calling 'zsh'. All seems
ok. May be a problem with ssh connection.

If you need more, please, let me know.
