  I think I would like to see more details about what you are doing.  It appears you have
made up your own enablement flag which is only being used for Cygwin.  What you want to do can be
accomplished simply by using TARGET_CFLAGS on your make to specify -DMALLOC_PROVIDED.  Does this
change tie in with a Cygwin patch?

  Regarding the maintainer tools, we have a local shared build which is built from an internal
source tree which has local fixes that may not be in sourceware.  For consistency, I discard any
generated files from a supplied patch and regenerate them myself using said tools.
