The AC_FUNC_MALLOC and AC_FUNC_REALLOC try to execute a program to
whether malloc(0) will return a NULL pointer. If that is not the case,
So that means these autoconf tests can't be used when crosscompiling to any
target, not just mingw. Bad. That should IMO at least be documented (it isn't
in autoconf 2.63).
C runtime. Those malloc and realloc functions are compliant in the
of AC_FUNC_MALLOC and AC_FUNC_REALLOC test, so patching them out is safe
when cross-compiling for win32.
That's not what I'm worried about. I'm worried about the tediousness to patch
these tests out in all packages that use them, vs. fixing the macro in
