The attached patch avoids the error, though I'm not sure if it's optimal (it adds "#undef malloc" as suggested in the above bug report).

Compilation then succeeds, but make still fails due to some strange dependency issue with man-page generation:

Seems like "src/[" is not automatically built ?

$ ls -l ./src/[
ls: 0653-341 The file ./src/[ does not exist.
===

To solve it, I built "/src/[" explicitly, then "make" completes successfully.

===
$ make src/[
   CC       src/lbracket.o
   CCLD     src/[
$ make
(( completes successfully ))
===

After that few tests fail with 'make check', I'll send in a separate message.

Hello,

I just got access to an AIX machine,
compiling 8.25 on AIX-7 fails with "undefined symbol .rpl_malloc".

I'll be able to investigate further a bit later, but this seems similar to:
