bug#11380: emacs compilation fails in call to oblookup() with len=-1

building emacs crashes in src/doc.c::oblookup() with len=-1. The following patch solves the problem:

diff --git a/src/doc.c b/src/doc.c

Chucking out git head (git commit e3e392d from git://repo.or.cz/emacs.git) and doing a debug build as described below
fails. The compilation looks for the non-existing file "chkmalloc.h".

Here are the steps that I performed:

  ./autogen.sh
  ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/public-dev/ CPPFLAGS=-DDEBUG CFLAGS="-g -O0"
  make
 
which fails as follows:

gcc -std=gnu99     -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../src -I../lib -I/space/pub-repos/emacs.git/lib-src -I/space/pub-repos/emacs.git/lib-src/../src -I/space/pub-repos/emacs.git/lib-src/../lib  -Wl,-znocombreloc  -DDEBUG -g -O0 -DEMACS_NAME="\"GNU Emacs\"" \
  -DVERSION="\"24.1.50\"" /space/pub-repos/emacs.git/lib-src/etags.c \
  regex.o ../lib/libgnu.a  -o etags
/space/pub-repos/emacs.git/lib-src/etags.c:233:24: fatal error: chkmalloc.h: No such file or directory

System is: Linux grower 3.3.2-6.fc16.i686 #1 SMP Sat Apr 21 13:23:12 UTC
