Hey. Has this been sorted out yet? I had not really looked at that mail 
yet... In gridflow2.h there are the lines:

#ifdef __APPLE__
static inline void *memalign (size_t a, size_t n) {return malloc(n);}
#include <malloc.h>

So perhaps you want to change the #ifdef so that it also comes up with a 
bogus memalign() as for OSX.

Actually, GridFlow used to have its own alignment, and then I discovered 
memalign, but it turns out it's not standard enough, so I'll have to 
revert to older tricks soon I guess... (alignment is getting ever more
