thanks for reporting, should be fixed now in the latest git version.
I added a #if HAVE_MALLOC_H...#endif around it.
I start to think that we don't need to include malloc.h at all though,
since malloc is defined in stdlib and malloc.h adds other protodyptes.
Seems as if you can compile it without malloc.h anyway... we'll look
into it. I CC'ed Tim and HGM on it, they probably know more about this...
