  Sorry, I should have been clearer in my previous email: the relevant
part of that command is not its printed output on the terminal, but its
return value, that you can test with “echo $?” right after running the
command.  In that context, 0 means true (yes, it may be
counter-intuitive), so you would expect a non-zero result (often 1)
since you don’t have musl (and, presumably you do get 0).

  This really does feel like zsh is interpreting the command in some
unhelpful way.
