update of devel/dmalloc to 5.2.0

Version 5.2.0:
   * Renamed the "max memory space wasted" to "max unused memory space".
   * Added PDF documentation files to the installation.
   * Fixed a problem with the global Makefile and dmalloc_t.  Thanks Bert.
   * Added new logfile expansion of %u as getuid() output.
   * Added new logfile expansion of %h as gethostname() output.
   * Added new logfile expansion of %t as time() output.
   * Added new logfile expansion of %p as getpid() output.
   * Added new logfile expansion of %i as thread-id output.
   * Removed the old logfile % processing.  %d no longer expands to pid.
   * Added LOG_PID to settings.dist to log pid on each line of logfile.
   * Added LOG_REOPEN to reopen log if pid changes (fork).  Thanks James.
   * Renamed LOG_ITERATION_COUNT to LOG_ITERATION in settings.dist.
   * Renamed STORE_SEEN_COUNT to LOG_PNT_SEEN_COUNT in settings.dist.
   * Renamed STORE_ITERATION_COUNT to LOG_PNT_ITERATION in settings.dist.
   * Renamed STORE_TIME to LOG_PNT_TIME in settings.dist.
   * Renamed STORE_TIMEVAL to LOG_PNT_TIMEVAL in settings.dist.
   * Renamed LOG_THREAD_ID to LOG_PNT_THREAD_ID in settings.dist.

   * Added many automatic tests to dmalloc_t.
   * Expanded the arguments to dmalloc_examine to return more information.
   * Found/fixed problem where last-used mark was not set right properly.
   * Found/fixed bad problem where leaked memory was not being reported.
Version 5.0.2:
   * Fixed some problems and improved code in the test utility dmalloc_t.
   * Integrated an internal random number generator to stop recursion.
   * Improved some of the configure script internals.
