I just wonder if that presents an incompatibility that could explain
what you are seeing.
Thanks for replying, Chuck.

As I mentioned in the initial email, I had already done just that.  Just
to be sure, I did it again, with the same result:

No you didn't, the point was: use gcc3, in other words: mixing libraries built with gcc3 and gcc4 doesn't work.

I think my initial post contains this line:

If I'm wrong, or I'm misunderstanding you, I apologize.

In any case, I have now supplied the information requested, no?

Building with gcc-4 and the old ncurses produces a working zsh, in case that wasn't clear from my earlier emails.
