+dmalloc does not build
+This broken build has been observed for big endian ARm with glibc and NPTL,
+and with i686 with glibc and NPTL.
+This has not been fully investigated yet. There is a name clash with strdup,
+where it is a macro somewhere, and dmalloc tries to re-declare a strdup
+function in dmalloc.h, but the declaration is overwritten with the macro
+expansion, and thus the build is broken.
+The common denominator seems to be NPTL.
