alloca() is not a heap allocation:
<quote src="man alloca">

       The  alloca() function allocates size bytes of space in the stack frame
       of the caller.  This temporary space is automatically  freed  when  the
       function that called alloca() returns to its caller.

It is a stack allocation.  So if make is returning an alloca()'d buffer,
then that is indeed a return of a local address.
