Jean-Marc's comment here may not have been clear enough. The celt
library supports three models for stack-like usage internally.  A
'pseudo-stack' which is only thread safe if you have a complete mode
setup per thread, alloca(), and C-99 var arrays.

Our configure scripts use C99 var arrays where available and alloca
failing that.
