Does configure with --enable-malloc-debugging build?

I'm trying to debug a potential heap corruption problem in Cygwin Python
so I configured with --enable-malloc-debugging.  Unfortunately, I get
the following build errors (after make clean):

    g++ -c -gstabs+ -O2 -MMD -fbuiltin ...
    ../../../../src/winsup/cygwin/ type specifier omitted
       for parameter
    ../../../../src/winsup/cygwin/ parse error before
       string constant
    ../../../../src/winsup/cygwin/ In function `void* 

Is the above caused by the switch from newlib's malloc to a recent
version of Doug Lea's malloc?  Or, is this cockpit error?
