Building on ppc64 linux systems and alpha systems fail because of problems
with the Doug Lea malloc. This patch make these systems use the system
malloc by default.
BTW, we've been recommending this solution for a while, eg:
Hm, interestingly that thread refers to ia64, but that's still apparently not
using the system malloc by default, so:
+#if defined(__powerpc64__) || defined(__alpha__)
...perhaps add "|| defined(__ia64__)" to that?
I don't have access to an ia64 box, but FWIW, XEmacs packages from Red Hat
have been built with system malloc for it about since the above thread.
