That's only in the os/xalloc.c code which doesn't seem to be actually used.
(I don't see INTERNAL_MALLOC defined anywhere, so it should be using the
  os/utils.c version, which is a much more boring wrapper.)

The imake configs had an option to enable it, but it was off by default
and it appears no one ever copied over the option to enable to the autoconf.
