Ok. I was thinking about the windows installers. Fixed. In the meantime,
you can access to it at [1].

Sure Chris, patches are always welcome. About the change you are
proposing, and connected with the axl_realloc proposal, maybe the best
way to approach to this problem is to allow axl library to configure the
tree-set of functions used to manage memory: calloc, realloc and free. 

This would help people wanting to implement memory tracking stuff to
provide such handlers without requiring that code to be included into
the axl or vortex base code.
