OK, that gets it building and it passed all tests still.

Unfortunately, it's no quicker than 2.18 was with my 5.10/system-malloc
build (about 2.3 secs with either version). (I had to manually delete
the 2.18 version that ships with 5.10 from the lib/ folder, because
1.0.14 installed into site/lib/.)
