We likely need some additional configure support to
handle this.  Is -lmtmalloc safe to used only with threaded
applications?  Is it automatically pulled in by -mt or other
thread options?  Which thread libraries is -lmtmalloc compatible
with?  Are there routines specific (ie: not in -lc) to -lmtmalloc
that can be used to ensure -lmtmalloc is in fact a malloc
