# We can't test for free (NULL) even at runtime, since it might
# happen to "work" for our test program, but not in general. So, be
# conservative and use feature tests for relatively modern hosts,
# where free (NULL) is known to work. This costs a bit of
# performance on some older hosts, but we can fix that later if
# needed.
