[Trilinos-Users] Workaround for odd bug involving /usr/include/c++/4.0.0/cstdlib:110: error: '::malloc' has not been declared on OS X.4 Mac Pro

Generally on a mac malloc.h won't get included because it is in /usr/ 
include/malloc instead of /usr/include. You may have to add a -DOSX  
to the CFLAGS and add an #ifdef OSX with an #include <malloc/malloc.h>
