   Ok, I found it: we now use -std=c99

why do we do that?  i don't see how it is correct espcially since we
don't try to program to a strictly C99 environment.  is alloca()
part of C99?  maybe this option correctly turns off the builtin?

i had also noticed this problem on macppc with something compiled
with -ansi.
