I think stdlib.h is sufficient (it defines malloc(size_t)). That's all
I can find quickly in the glibc docs, don't have K&R at hand at the

Even so, I think a better header scheme is called for. Since the
sanei_* headers are parts of the libraries that backends build upon, I
think it would be better to make a single sane.h that include
everything that is needed. The libraries can still include the headers
separately, but backends only have to use a single include to get
everything right.

Please comment.
