This was the best solution, thanks for the responses (all of them).
A good idea would be to just add alloca.h with just this line to make some 
compiles happy.  Besides, there were a good 20 files with alloca.h included, 
this was much quicker.

Try uncommenting alloca.h or if there are too many occurences
temporarily touch create one with theese contents :
#include <stdlib.h>
