Then go ahead and put it into gnulib :-) We already have some modules
which consist of several .c files.

It's a fork from the glibc code. IMO the first step should be to
resync this code with glibc.

Modules in gnulib can use alloca; then they simply depend on alloca.

If your compiler (tcc) doesn't support alloca, can you check whether
the alloca,m4 macro from gnulib detects this correctly?
