Whats the consensus on alloca and it's presence in libc? Gcc will internally
deal with calls to this normally and it's only in libc for some archs:
This means on say powerpc machines libc doesn't have alloca which makes some
package ports "interesting" when configure/etc go looking for alloca.
Is there any reason to leave these?
