Yeah, I've been wondering what to do about this on OS X too (which has 
no malloc.h at all). There are some packages that would need 10-20 
patches to fix all occurrences of #include <malloc.h>. I was thinking 
it would be better to just patch a new one-line malloc.h ("#include 
<stdlib.h>") into the source tree though, since buildlink is really 
about making packages work with the package system, not working around 
package bugs.
