Errr... oops.  Only <alloca.h> is *needed* (because alloca() is a #define
on Solaris).  <malloc.h> must have been slipped in there when I was
futzing around...  Sorry.  If no one else needs it (and no one has
complained about it so far), I think it can safely be ditched.

It was?  Looking at the previous version in CVS (1.6), it wasn't.  1.7
didn't show up until tonight.

There have been strong feelings expressed on this list as to where
#if/#ifdef statements go, so I'll avoid saying *where* they go.  But
checking for <alloca.h> is simple enough.

There's already a "Check for headers" section in
vorbis-tools/configure.in.  Just add:


(see ao/configure.in for an example)  Then, wherever #if statements are
put, add:


That makes it portable.
