I had a look at this, here's what I wrote to upstream:
21:06 < adi> las: libs/pbd/dmalloc.cc mentions "for any NON-COMMERCIAL purpose"
as an exception, so it's technically not free.
21:07 < adi> (at least Debian is pretty sensitive to this kind of limitations
21:07 < adi> I had a look at the code, and I believe it's actually not in use.
21:08 < adi> The whole file is #ifdef DEBUG_MALLOC, and if it's set (it's not
when building for Debian), it includes a file from /usr/local/src.
21:08 < adi> I hence believe that nobody is using this code anymore, because
#include "/usr/local/src/dmalloc-4.1.2/return.h" would likely fail
on every machine.
21:08 < adi> (face palm anyone? ;) )
21:09 < adi> I guess removing the file from ardour (and possibly releasing
2.8.12, just to be sure) would do the trick.
So bottom line is: it's safe to remove the file, either we do it or
uptream will do. If we do it, we must not forget to remove dmalloc.cc
Let's give them a couple of hours to respond.
