I agree with you. And I think that the dummy malloc.h should be
removed from the cgilib port, in particular because it leads to
build failure for calc:

(the configure script detects the presence of the dummy malloc.h
provided by the cgilib port, then the build fails because of this,
for an unknown reason).
