[Bug-gnulib] vasnprintf: drop alloca dependency, tag xsize.h as LGPL

I'm looking at the snprintf problem in GnuTLS.  vasnprintf is
available under LGPL, but it depends on two non-LGPL modules:

* xsize: the same file (xsize.h) appear to be available under LGPL in
  gettext.  Is there a problem saying LGPL in modules/xsize in gnulib?

* alloca: What license is this?  alloca.c says:
   (Mostly) portable public-domain implementation -- D A Gwyn
  Does this mean it is available under LGPL too?  In any case,
  vasnprintf seem to work even if alloca is not present, so I suggest
  dropping the hard requirement on alloca in vasnprintf.

        * modules/xsize (License): Use LGPL.

        * modules/vasnprintf (Depends-on): Remove alloca.
