To get it to compile on Mac OS X 10.5.5 with gcc 4.2.1, I had to tell
it where to find the malloc.h header file:

export CFLAGS=-I/usr/include/malloc
./configure

Hope that helps someone ...

Hi.
The lib malloc.h is in directory "malloc" on OSx (Lion, Mountain Lion):
 /usr/include/malloc

You can do:
 cd /usr/include/malloc
 cp malloc.h ..

And done...
Thiago.
