stdlib.h is specified by the ANSI C standard and defines things like
malloc(), free(), NULL, and a grab-bag of other useful functionality.
As such, it doesn't seem to be an unreasonable dependency to me (not
that my opinion carries much weight 'round here).

Does your embedded platform not provide the header? If not, how does
it handle (eg.) userland memory allocation?

Counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums.
