Since the number of packages that don't work with the old allocator is
very small, 2 confirmed so far, this doesn't really make sense. What
would make sense is to build 5.4.7 with malloc-dl, and make the old
malloc available as a separate library.
In other words, the default behavior should be the new malloc,
Would you reconsider?
