No we don't, unless you are using PCC :D
The block in <stdlib.h> only provides an alloca(3) prototype, and only
if the compiler already #defines alloca as __builtin_alloca.
While this works for gcc in some -std modes (e.g. gnu++14), it does
not in others (c++14, c++11).
On the contrary, Linux <alloca.h> explicitely #undefs alloca(), then
#define alloca() as __builtin_alloca(), so it always works, regardless
