`AC_FUNC_ALLOCA should never define a prototype on the BSDs. Bump revision.`

Patch deals with alloca detection and includes where a special condition was
added for BSD variance to redirect to `stdlib.h`. That check has been heavily
modified since, so requires careful analysis before we can merge it.

Comments from Zack W.
> Upstream AC_FUNC_ALLOCA *unconditionally* includes stdlib.h, which is what I
was going to say we ought to do instead of this patch. We should still verify
that alloca is successfully detected on NetBSD. Please file a bug for this
