AIX bug malloc(0)

make with aix5.1 compiler vac5 (xlc) was failing in checks until I added
if (n == 0)
n = 1;
before calling malloc.
The technical reference for AIX 5L 5.1 says:
If the malloc or valloc subroutine is called with a size of 0, the subroutine
returns a null pointer
The better way to fix this would probably be to allow a NULL being returned
if malloc(0) was called.
