op/bop.t and malloc wrap check on Win32
Message ID:
I notice that change 23666 
( now 
causes the op/bop.t test, which had been failing on Win32, to be skipped 

C:\p5p\bleadperl>.\perl -Ilib -V:usemallocwrap

which, in turn, is presumably because win32/ doesn't set 
"usemallocwrap" either way.

However, I thought that malloc wrap checking was actually enabled on 
Win32/VC++ because win32/ has:

 *    This symbol, if defined, indicates that we'd like malloc wrap checks.
#define PERL_MALLOC_WRAP        /**/

Is this all that is required to turn on malloc wrap checking?

If so, then I'll commit the attached patch to bring Config into line 
with reality.
