Note that Fedora in general doesn't have this problem.  I can certainly
build the zsh source RPM without issues on my Fedora systems, and
Fedora's buildsystem and package CI system also doesn't have any issues
with it.

I can't really guess as to what might be wrong with the system where
he's trying to build zsh.  In Fedora all packages are built in something
called mock which sets up a chroot with a limited set of things
installed within it.  This frees us from worrying too much about what
might be installed (or modified) on the host where the packages are
being built.  I do know (because
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1687574 was filed for this)
that the build isn't being done that way and so is susceptible to random
things being installed on the host system.
