Aha! Thanks. Somehow, I missed that. The only change was part of a
patch from upstream to replace a buggy use of valloc with use of malloc
instead, such that configure no longer needed to test for the presence
of valloc. I can see no problem with undoing that change in
configure.ac and touching configure.

Interesting. I'm not very motivated to chase that down in 1.14, if for
no other reason than unstable is using 1.15 at this point.
