Patch them? Although I don't know how sensible that is, a name
like "omalloc" makes me imagine it is some kind of memory allocation
With a bit of luck and a couple of #defines you could use one of
many alternative libraries.
If you've talked to the upstream you might be able to persuade them
to make it optional even if you can't do the work. (Though it is
always nice to be able to hack packages you maintain, just in case.)
