      Description

      While attempting to run the included unit tests (attempting to track down another issue), I got an error from a test header file. Apparently the standard library declaration for malloc(size_t) and friends are now in <stdlib.h>, or where they should be. On FreeBSD including <malloc.h> will generate a compiler error (via preprocessor), and directs you to include <stdlib.h>. Those governing the header files are adamant about the modifications.
