I'd say that it could be any alloca that you like.  (The simplest one
would be malloc.  :-)

Yes, that's true.  One of the long-term goals is to unify Autoconf
with that part of gnulib where this would make sense.  In the short
run, though, perhaps it'd make more sense to move most of the guts of
AC_FUNC_ALLOCA from Autoconf into gnulib.
