I've recently tried a GNU-style build of gdb and discovered
that I had to change gdb/Makefile.in to turn off the MMALLOC
support because the mmalloc sources are not there. So...
What is the best way to fix this?
1: Check in a copy of mmalloc
(+) would allow normal GNU-style builds
(-) mmalloc is not used on NetBSD-style builds,
so it represents some (362K?) code bloat.
2: Change our gdb/Makefile.in to turn off MMALLOC?
(+) then we don't need the mmalloc sources
(-) local modification to Makefile.in not suitable
for submission back to the maintainers.
I favor option 1. Opinions?
