 Let's try to get this unstuck, by disentangling the various options.

 I've made a branch `remove_openbsd_malloc` that ports icanhasaccount's
 removal code to master if we decide to do that.  PR at
 https://github.com/torproject/tor/pull/224 . Not my preferred approach.

 And I've made a branch called `with_malloc` that ports the parts of
 Hello71's patch that I agree with to master: it adds --with-malloc=,
 doesn't change our default, doesn't break old configure options, and keeps
 openbsd malloc as an option.  Works for me, but probably needs more review
 and testing. PR at https://github.com/torproject/tor/pull/225 .

 The above two branches apply to master only and are mutually exclusive,
 though we could probably combine them into one.

 For backport purposes, I have a branch `fix_nonstandard_malloc_029` that
 only does the minimum needed to fix the originally supported issue. PR at
 https://github.com/torproject/tor/pull/226 . Works for me.
