Thanks for the quick action. As for the lalloca.h file, you may be
able to use the following (taken from the autoconf info pages which
are under the FDL)
/* AIX requires this to be the first thing in the file. */
# if HAVE_ALLOCA_H
# include <alloca.h>
# ifdef _AIX
# ifndef alloca /* predefined by HP cc +Olibcalls */
char *alloca ();
I *think* you can cite "fair use" and put this in the public domain.
Double checking with the authors, of course, won't hurt :-)
