[lldb-dev] Using a undeclared free function in lldb Mangled.cpp causes build failure

I am trying to build lldb on a Ubuntu 12.04 x86_64 box. I have a self-hosted clang 3.3 toolchain successfully built and installed on this box. So, I thought it would be simple just add a symlink lldb to the lldb-3.3-src into the llvm/tools/, redo the configure, make, and make install would do it.

Not really!

zackp at nb1:~/Downloads/clang3.3/build$ make -j 2

0. why in a C++ code, the C free function is used?
1. Why when using it, the #include <cstdlib> is nowhere in the source?
