<sigh> You are completely wrong, see K&R's treatment of ANSI C

Standard Library, Section B6

void free(void *p)
  free deallocates the space pointed to by p; it does nothing if p is NULL.
  p must be a pointer to space previously allocated by calloc, malloc,
  or realloc.

Find me a system that doesn't pretend to implement ANSI C, ISO C or POSIX
and I'll show you a system that won't build Gimp.
