I am OK with this. The submitter of the fix for 7113017 apparently
did not pay attention in the updating to use POSIX functions that
posix supplies its own function called posix_memalign so does not
define memalign. I don't know off hand what library that would come
from on all platforms and I do not think it worth cycles to figure this out.
I hope this is the only such issue but don't know if for a fact.
Some of these portability requests seem like they are more trouble than 
they are
worth and using malloc.h works just fine for me !

If there are any more issues I suggest we just revert 7113017.
