Subject: net/ORBit: question regarding Makefile variable

net/ORBit in some of its Makefiles has
ORBIT_HAVE_ALLOCA_H=1  (or =0, depending on the system)

Now is this sufficient for a define ORBIT_HAVE_ALLOCA_H to be accessible
in the C code?
config.h uses
#include <alloca.h>

At least on my system I had to add to the CPPFLAGS definition in the
in order to have ORBIT_HAVE_ALLOCA_H known to the C preprocessor.
Is this a bug in ORBit? If so, does anyone know a better fix than
patching the's and add the above -D to the CPPFLAGS?
