The bleats about malloc_good_size and malloc_size are a consequence of  
the need to include <malloc/malloc.h> to get the prototypes on Mac OS  
X. (The header does nothing else relevant to perl: it seems to define  
a lot of undocumented instrumentation.) Configure is not currently  
checking for it. I suspect it needs yet another config variable, an  
addition -- probably just with with inhdr --  around here:

: see if this is a malloc.h system
: we want a real compile instead of Inhdr because some systems have a
: malloc.h that just gives a compile error saying to use stdlib.h  
echo " "
$cat >try.c <<EOCP
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <malloc.h>
int main () { return 0; }
set try
if eval $compile; then
    echo "<malloc.h> found." >&4
    echo "<malloc.h> NOT found." >&4
set i_malloc
eval $setvar

in Configure, and the corresponding tweaks to config_h.SH and Porting/ 
Glossary. If somebody will confirm this, I'll come up with a patch. (I  
won't touch metaconfig, though.)
