You should ignore the dmalloc.h it's only needed when using the dmalloc 
malloc debugging lib. So it's save to ignore.

It sounds to me as a problem of the C libraries you are using... What gcc 
and libc versions are you using (if you compiled them yourselves)

I might try compiling it on a sun on our faculty... but only if my 
limited time allows.... (and I still got an account then with acces to 
suns with that version of the os)
