The win32/Makefile contains a PERL_MALLOC option (equivalent to

Excellent. Now the question remaining is: How many different 5.8.0
APIs are there?
In other words, what are the config options that create binary
incompatibility, and which therefore must be tested separately?
(I am *not* counting system-driven API changes like gcc options.)
The only ones I know of are the threading options.
There is also a USE_LARGE_FILES option; I don't know if that affects
compatibility or not?
