You've come up with something that enables IRIX to work with -Dusemymalloc?
I'm surprised, and impressed... be forewarned that it is likely to vary with
versions of IRIX, including within IRIX 6.5.x, and on different processors,
and that IRIX problems with -Dusemymalloc often pop up in ways that aren't
always caught by the standard Perl testsuite (coredumps on later -
especially large/long-time-running - programs).
