PLEASE :) somebody who has successfully linked this library into your mud 
give some insight on how to do so.  I've been fiddling with it for about 
4 or 5 hours now to no avail, but it seems as if it's exactly the thing I 
am looking for.

btw, merely including dmalloc.h into yer source files does nothing as the 
documentation would lead one to believe...
