thank you for your thorough tests!

Only manually by either defining the variable during configure or by

I've rechecked its orgigin, result:

        2006-08-31  Roger While <>
        * call.c: Alternate ifdef'd algo for call list

This is "alternate code" that Roger added but it never was "live" (at
least not in any OpenCOBOL or GnuCOBOL release).

Roger post-documented this for 2.x where the following code lines were

#if     0       /* Alternative hash structure */
#define COB_ALT_HASH

That is the code-part where you could add it, but I think it is quite
likely to be removed for 4.0.
