I'm lurking here, if I didn't upstream those patches, it is because
they are either freebsd only
(BOOL_DEFINED is due to FreeBSD namespace pollution in nis headers
that I do need to fix)
or due to a FreeBSD specific thing, fdescfs is a special filesystem on
FreeBSD that is only mounted in special cases (basically mostly needed
for openjdk)
The package builders do mount it to allow java package to properly get
built and this triggered
the bug that official packages where built with /dev/fd support while
most of end user where having
a system without it mounting resulting in some problems.

I don't think this has anything to do with ZSH but this is both a
FreeBSD only problem
