Using strawberry perl 5.8.9 with its included mingw.org gcc 3.4.5, alloca's return value is being used as a memory block, when alloca really has a void return type. The same problem was in Cygwin, in RT 80217. For Strawberry Perl 5.8.9, "# define _alloca(size) __builtin_alloca(size)" fixed the problem just like in Cygwin. I don't know when to conditionally enable __builtin_alloca for strawberry Perls, or what version number of GCC or other macro to use as the conditional.
