You could change it so that it computes the size and calls something like
'circle_malloc' if you wanted.

A better solution is to find the code to turn off the warnings, like these
have been:

# if defined(__BORLANDC__)      /* Silence warnings we don't care about. */
#  pragma warn -par     /* to turn off >parameter< 'ident' is never used. */
#  pragma warn -pia     /* to turn off possibly incorrect assignment. 'if (!(x=a))' */
#  pragma warn -sig     /* to turn off conversion may lose significant digits. */
# endif

New in bpl21.  It's POSIX, but apparently Windows compilers don't have it.
