Details - dune-common.m4 includes a test that checks for malloc. It appears to me that malloc is not used in the core modules (I just testet our module dune-pm which depends on all core modules and compiled fine). Maybe this is still a relict from istl allocator?

The problem is that the malloc test breaks cross-compilation on linux for some platforms (e.g. Windows).

I therefore request the removal of this test.

One or more files have been attached.
