Well it's currently not fully running as-is, you'd need to edit memdbg_defines.h and uncomment the define.

To try it out, do the above, then comment out some obscure free() somewhere in the code, build and do a --test=0. The cool thing compared to eg. Valgrind is that the performance penalty is negligible (at least in comparison).
